    Echo all the recommendations for Babes here. I tried the vinegar and water thing. Didn't really work for me. Babes Spot Solver took them right out. Since then, I've been using Boat Brite and it...

    I have the bags that 04Outback referenced and they fit great. They even leave a tiny bit of room on top and in front of the bags. With that much weight in the back, you do need to balance it...

    Definitely takes a lot of practice and experience. Like Dave said, I usually go at it at 45-90 deg. When I get around 5 feet away, I cut to the left which puts the driver side towards the dock. ...

    I don't think it's a problem to overfill the bags and let them start squirting. Happens to me almost every time I go out. I even use it as an indicator that the bags are full. Depending upon what...

    Those pump looking things are solenoids valves. Just like the ones in your sprinkler system. They allow you to fill each bag independently. They're tied to the fill switches on the dash. The pump...

    I started with an '04 Premier that has 2 molded in fins and a 1.2" center fin (I think). I rode with the fins for 3 seasons. I think they did become a bit of a crutch for me. But in some ways I...

    Hmmm. I think the weight in the back still makes a difference whether or not the plate is up or down. I agree with it up, the wake should be even bigger. But when I went from the stock 250s in the...

    I have an '04 LSV which I think is the same boat. I have 2 500s in the back (19x19x42) and a LaunchPad bag that goes in the walkway (450lbs). This works pretty well. The 500s pretty much fill up...

    04 Mobius LSV. I run 1400-1800 depending upon how many people are with us. I upgraded the 2 rear sacks to the 19x19x42 (I think) bags which are 500lbs each. I have a Launch Pad bag (450lbs) that...

    I have an '04 LSV. I run 2 500s in the back (the 19x19x42 bags), the stock 400 in the front, and a LaunchPad 450 in the walkway. Around 1800 total. The wake is pretty sweet.

    Do you want to test the bag itself or the whole system? If it's just the bag, you can take it out and use standard waterbed fittings and a garden hose to fill it up. If it's the whole system, not...

    I think we're in violent agreement here. Earlier in the rotation, you're looking more up. And it's that look up that initiates the rotation. I really love how they have the 4 audio tracks on "The...

    I got hassled at Glendo Res in Wyoming a few weeks ago. We had 5 adults and 7 kids. Kids were in the 3-9 range. Heaviest -might- weigh 85 lbs. My boat is only rated for 10 people or 1350 lbs. ...

    We ran with the 440 in the front today. Puts me at 1000 rear and around 800 front. Definitely helped even things out. I'd say my platform now sits 2-3 inches underwater. Planes out much quicker. ...
