  • 2007 206 Lots of ballast - no push

    Hi All,
    I have 900# on the swim platform and 900# in the rear locker. Then I have 750# in the bow.

    Mission 2.0

    The hyperlink video below shows a clean wave but the push is not consistent. Causing us to always hold the rope.

    (Never tried to post a hyperlink before- hope it works?!)

    Any guidance is appreciated!
    Thx..

    For my 2004 216 (direct drive, same as yours) I found that listed worked significantly better. This was my setup
    400 rear locker on the surf side
    750 next to motor on surf side
    Passengers shifted toward surf side to make sure we had a good list.
    Some weight up front depending on # of passengers
    Hydrogate forward when surfing port. Back on starboard
    Speed around 10
    Getting a good wave on port is challenging due to prop rotation.
    Make sure you have a decent size board.

          Yeah, I’m trying to force it with lots of ballast.

          All this advice will allow me to finesse the ballast with less weight in the right location .

          Thank you !
