Weighting a 247 for wakesurfing

Recommended Posts

Billmelater

Got a new (to me) 2008 247 with quad ballast and PW. Took it out for a cruise this weekend and noticed for sure we're going to need more weight. (The wedge wasn't working)

What to buy?

BTW that's one big a** boat.

Bill, Congrats on your 247. You have purchased the best wakeboard wakesurf boat on the water. You will have to add weight to your boat to produce the surf wave. I have tried tons of configurations and finally resolved to have custom sacs made for my boat. Do it right the first time and your experience will be better. I can add 4000 pounds of water to my boat. All sacs drain and fill with the flip of a button. Below is a link of my custom install.

Also do a search on the site for little 247 wave and rainy day photos. read these post as well.

If I'm reading your custom install post right you have quad ballast but are you also using the power wedge plus the additional sacs?
