Hi I'm looking at purchasing a 2001 outback LS and was wondering how the wake is for wakeboarding. I don't really want to deal with ballast bags a such so i hope its decent enough for wakeboarding:). Thanks

Had a 99 outback ls with ballast tanks and it was ok for wakeboarding. No where near a vdrive. It was awesome for skiing and good for barefooting. I think if your intermediate wakeboarder you will be disappointed unless you add more than stock ballast. jmo

did the hull change around that year though? I remember reading something about that but i'm not 100% sure.

There was a moderate hull change right around then depending on model but for wakeboarding he would want some ballast in any of them.

Also, does anyone know how the gas consumption is on a 350 indmar vs say a 190 hp 4.3 L engine?

LOL...a whole lot more.....depends if its carb, tbi, or mpfi. A carbed 350 will consume about 8 gal/hr at wot. less for efi. What is the 4.3 in and how much is that boat weight??
