Coming to a Chaparral near you...SURFGATE!

I think you'll find more usable freeboard there than it looks. Would I put 1500# of ballast on the rear? Doubtful, but I think there is more room for error than those rolled down transom makes one think.
@Falko on my lake I have 2 brand new NXT's, a G23, a giant new mastercraft (the big expensive one) a couple of recent supra's and an assortment of older inboards like mine.
I have talked to many of the owners and when I ask how much ballast they are running they look at me cross eyed. Just factory. They are all 200+ pounds and tugging at the rope all day.
I am guessing Mr and Mrs Chappie will be the same unless they have kids to ask them for bags

What are these spark plugs telling me?

Carbureted direct drives have the problem of the carb being angled back. When you accelerate, this angle gets worse and gas can dribble of the booster venturis instead of being pulled by vacuum. This super rich condition could be causing the bog. Plugs 7 & 8 being dark indicate this is happening because this extra fuel just runs down inside the intake manifold to these cylinders. I had the same problem on a previous boat and fixed it by installing an angled carb wedge under the carb.
That makes sense, but I've already got a wedge in there. If this were the case, would larger accelerator pump jets make the problem worse?

I came here thinking this was some sort of open invite to a boating weekend. I'm leaving this thread disappointed.
