Is there a Bow PnP option?

Recommended Posts

Couldn't find this anywhere... On the 2013 Wakesetters, is there a bow PnP option? I know there's a stern optin.

Why would there be a bow PnP option when there is a bow ballast tank option? I doubt they are going to do a PnP option so you can put sacks on top of your seats.

Well, seeing as everyone seems to say that you need extra bow ballast for surfing, I figured it would be nice to have... I know the axis has it... Although no stock tank.

You've provided the reason to answer your own question.

And Yes, if there was space, it would be nice to have. But no, there isn't.

Thanks! Anyone know if there's a 12v outlet in the bow for a pump? Or if there was an aftermarket option to just use the internal pump? Better yet, that additional bow ballast isn't necessary for surfing in the 23 :-)

We currently use solid ballast on the surf side bow of our boat. I prefer it to the bow tank because I can push the weight all the way to the edge. However, we run 99% regular and when we have to switch to goofy I have to manually move 200# from one side to the other. That is, if I like the goofy surfer. :)

The default surf setup only fills the bow 25%. I usually only fill it completely if we have a ton of people and they are crowding toward the rear. If we don't have too many people I can just increase the speed, but with 5-6 toward the back of the boat it kills my hole shot - the boat takes forever to get up to speed. Dumping a little from the surf sac and adding bow will keep the boat more level from start, getting up to surf speed more quickly.

I never propped down on Stella, which would have helped this situation a lot.

This is great advice. Thank you - are you running additional stern ballast with that setup (over and above the stock tanks that is)?
