LT4 w/ 3077

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have a 22 - 24MXZ with LT4 and 3077 prop. 

I’m having a miserable time with my surf wave. I have 6 full river DC105-12s (64lbs each and Two 12s on port side which causes a good lean that direction. Starboard side has 6 50lb bags of weight to help it sit level when boat is empty. 

my wave only looks acceptable at 12.6mph and wedge in #1. anything else faster or slower and wedge in any other position is washed out. 

any thoughts. I had the same thing in my 23 LSV weight wise on my wave was absolutely amazing with the 410 and 2277 prop. 

 

no altitude either im on the delta.

[scratching my head] any pics?  regular or goofy problem or both? 

from your other post, said crew of 9, so maybe combined with the ~700+ lbs of lead/speakers above, thats a lot of weight.  is surfgate totally submerged/spray over the top?  Have you tried a smaller crew and/or draining ballast as an experiment?

what other ballast do you have?  Anything up front?

Pics would certainly help, but I agree with possibly dumping some weight to see if that helps at all.  FWIW - when I surf our 22 LSV (I know....not the same boat), we have the rear ballast w/ PNP bags at about 75% full, center and front tank full and I put a 600# bag up front as well.  I don't believe we go more that 11.5, but might be way off on that (haven't been out yet this year so I don't remember).

Also there is no paddle wheel on the 2022’s as we have learned, the current on the delta will fluctuate your speed reading on the GPS setting so that will also be a factor!when trying to dial in your pre-sets.

what slough are you riding in? 
dont even bother with Woodward, Railroad and other shallow channels IMHO, you will be fighting a loosing battle

the old river channel has some good spots where you can find 18-25ft, and Victoria is decent for surfing, but at low tide you want to be in a deeper channel

When I had my 19 25LSV I found that 18’ plus was optimal for surfing. And anything less than 15’, forget it.

It is my understanding that the 22 is right at 1000 pounds heavier than the previous generation from the factory. Then you are throwing another 1000 pounds on that. You are at least 1000 pounds heavier than I ran. I would imagine that you would need even more depth. Maybe 20’ +. Just some random thoughts. 
 

the channel is always a great place when it’s not to busy. We use to surf out of the slough and straight out and down the channel til we hit rough water.
