i could use some help... i always seem to have a nice wake for jumping on only one side of the boat. i've tried to move people around, filled rear ballasts at different levels, used only the front ballast etc.. still have one side better than the other. Is there an easy fix that i'm missing? i've only had the boat for one season so far, so i'm still getting used to it..

I have an 05 LSV. Mine has a tendency to have a wake that washes out on the boats left side when everything is weighted equally. I put 75 pounds of lead weight on the side of the boat and it is perfect now. I still have to move people around when I have a bunch but the 75 pounds seems to be the magic number for me.

ur wash is probably from the propeller. i think this because i was once told that surfing on one side of a particular boat is better because of the roatation of the propeller
