Contemplating a 2004 Malibu VLX for the wake and its longer transition plus interior room, however would like the GT-40, less weight needed and better fuel usage on the 2003 SAN.
So basically what would be the best way to make a SAN wake into Malibu wake?

I could be wrong but 2002 was last year for gt40.

Best way to weight a SAN is 60-40 rear to front.

Most people will do two 750s in the vdrive lockers a 680 in the ski locker and about 500 to 1000 in the bow.

A really nice wake is about 550 filled in each vdrive sack, 680 in the locker and 500 up front.

Typically the 750s dont get filled unless for surfing

You are not incorrect... 2002 was the last year. The best setup I had when I had mine was 750s in the rear, u shaped sack under seat in bow 680 tube in ski locker and 750 in the bow. Really mellowed the lip out but still booted HARD with all that front weight

make the SAN wake into a malibu wake? Probably not gonna happen but you might try center ballast with a 750 sac up front and leave the rear empty. The only way to get a mellow wake close to a malibu and still have some size is to run less weight in the rear and more up front. I actually have ran it like that in my SAN before and it was pretty nice.

Agree with the dual v drive locker sacks, middle full + v shaped shack under bow

Then go ahead and make your buddies sit up in the bow or if its just a wake sesh fill a sack up and toss it in the bow

good times to be had
