So I have been debating this one.. but figured I would see if anyone here has tried it.. so the moomba wake.. no secret bit rampy? Anyone tried modifying thier wakeplate or had a custome one built... I was looking at the plate and wondered if I rounded down or redesigned my plate a bit if it would give a more rolled wake and not kick so hard at the top?

figured I would see if anyone else has tried it or thought about it? Save me some time so i dont re-invent the wheel?

The wake shape is primarily a function of the hull. The plate (trim tab) is changing the boats angle slightly, placing a different portion of the hull in the water. The plate will have little to do with the shape. You may be able to get a plate to pull the hull down more, which should make the wake bigger but the ramp should be the same.
