I recently purchased a 2021 Malibu 24 MXZ. It is an amazing boat, but I was very worried about the weight for towing purposes since the dry weight rating went up from 5,500 to 6,000 pounds in the 2021 model. I wasn't sure if this was "rounding up" or some "safety factor" or if there was any real increase from 2020. Most of the information I found on the manufacturer and dealer website, forums. etc., all pointed back to the earlier models. Even my sales rep thought the whole rig would weigh about 6,800 pounds on the trailer. I was concerned because our tow vehicle is rated at 7,500 lbs
bkearney posted a topic in Ballast Info & How-toWe just got a 22 MXZ (2018 model year) and have tried it out on the lake this weekend. Our old boat was a 2003 Moomba, so it is a bit of a change for us. We have the 410 engine and the 2249 prop. There are PNP tanks in the back lockers. We have a couple of questions compared to the old boat. I have scanned through the forums a bit and I 1) Cruising down the lake with 3 folks, the engine is hitting about 4k rpms to get to 28-30 MPH. Is this what other folks run? 2) With the same 3 folks, and setting the default surf option (100% in all lockers) we can use the wedge at all levels. Ho
Have a lot of bow rise when surfing and can't see over the bow when sitting. Have to kneel on set or stand. Want to sit! I put a 400lb ballast sac up front and it got the bow down so I can see over it when sitting and made the wave better. Anyone know if there is an aftermarket ballast that can be installed up there to add this additional weight, or do I need to be stuffing a bunch of 50 lb steel shot bags up there in nooks and crannies? If steel shot bags are the best/only solution, any insight on where to put it and how to get to where to put it?
hey guys, Location: Sydney Australia Just recently purchased a 2006 Vride. previously owned a Moomba outback Direct Drive and it sucked for wakeboarding and wakesurfing. i had the highfly fatseat ( big u shape ) to go around the engine, however it took up all the room in the boat and definatly wasnt convinient. in saying that it was 1500lbs but i recon we only ever filled it to 1350-1400lbs max. in addition we had about 6 people in the boat did it have enough push for surfing... No So now having just purchased the Vride which has the 500lbs factory hard tank mid ball
