    Default 89 supra comp wake

    I think the boat throws a decent wake with around a 1000 pounds in her but it sketch at best, you have to be on the ball not to sink her.
    I want to here from some of the other comp owners to here your ballast setups and how much weight.

    I will post a pic of the boat and wake asap.

    Post your comp wake, and specs.

    On my 92 I have waited it a few times I put 450 lbs on each side of the motor 100 ilbs in the nose. It does ok but as you said you have to be real careful because of how low you are in the water

    I am yet to put a ballast in my 84 comp, due to the fact of limited storage space...The boat came with a 200Lb fat sac (the wap around bench style) never have filled it though, guess i need a pump to do that??...Usually mine throws a pretty nice size wake with a cooler of beverages and a couple bodys in the back , i feel like as low as it sits in the water anyway, any more added weight may be a mistake....

    yeah I'm nervous to weight mine as I don't have a windsheild to block the submarine, I also don't have enough time in my boat to know......
    Would love to get advice....want to try surfing this summer and thought i'd weight the portside hard......
    We're just so low already........

    The main problem is once a rider falls u need to put in neutral and sit for a min. then get the rider because of the nose being so low but you cant stop to fast becasue the back will take over water . I have found its almost not worth it dont get me wrong you can get a nice wake out of it but with the space issue and the water issue its usally more of a hassle.

    We started the day with 315#s on the drivers side and 4 guys and at lunch we diched 135#s and it was allot better and the wake was still decent. I would say that anything over a 200# sac and a full boat is a no go for me.

    Its raining here for the last week or so. I will get pics of my boat and of the wake board wake and the surf wave next time we go out. Anyone screw around with the trim plate angle?

    Last season I experimented once with four 80 lb concrete wall blocks from my landscape project. my stepson loved it, but clearly was a little intimidated by the wake. I never got to try it myself.

    Over the winter I purchased two 250 lbs fat sacks and a high volume pump when I found a good deal used. I figure if 320 lbs is good than 500 lbs must be great!

    Both of us are newbe boarders (I am an old slalom guy), but I am interested in trying it out with these new bags. What I really hope to be able to do is surf it, but I don't yet own a board, and I don't know if the wake will be big enough to support it. I have yet to try out these new bags, it will be interesting to see how it works.

    Between limited floor space and freeboard, I suspect that 500 lbs of balast plus people is pushing the practicle limit for a TS6M. I don't know if I will try adding any more ballast weight.
