    Actually, I disagree with you max. I'm not comparing the Moomba Outback wake with the Mastercraft Prostar 197 wake in any way. I'm using the data from Mastercraft's R&D department that led them to...

    Yeah, I would have to agree with all the comments regarding the various sizes and densities of wakes among the tournament boats. There is no replacement for good technique behind the boat. I'm...

    Hi sled. Glad to hear you're also an avid skier. We're a dying breed! Yes, I am concerned about the added stress on the wake plate/hull. Haven't got a solution yet but I'm thinking about it. ...

    Hi sled. Yes, we ran it several times in stock form specifically to look at the slalom wake. My wife and I are both avid slalom skiers. Back in 1997 we bought a Ski Nautique right off the showroom...

    Hey guys. All pics are with the cant in the plate. I had two pictures at each speed taken from two different directions. In one direction the sun was reflecting so much on the wake that it made it...

    Hey Eric! I LOVE that new 4-blade 13x13! What a difference in the wake shape. The 22-off rooster is nearly gone. Great recommendation. As for the prop puller, Doh! I should have listened to you...

    2005 Outback Slalom Wake

    I've been getting my boat dialed in and thought I'd shoot some pictures of the slalom wake. The boat is set up without a tower, 1/2 tank of gas, rear seat in, OJ 4-blade 13 X 13 prop, driver plus...

    Knocker Style Prop Puller Question

    Does anyone know how these devices work? I need to pull my prop and got one sent with my new OJ. It just looks like a large brass cylinder with threads cut into it.

    Thanks deerfield, that's the kind of verification I was looking for. Sounds like ~180 degrees is the normal operating temp.

    180 Degree Operating Temperature

    My temperature gauge seems to be hanging out around 180 degrees on my 05 Outback (Indmar Assault 325 hp). Most of my other boats ran around 160. I'm thinking the previous owner (or his shop) may...

    One thing Mastercraft did on the Prostar 197 hull that provided one of the best slalom wakes in history was to add a slight lip or hook to the bottom of the hull at the transom. I've looked at a 197...

    From my experience skiing behind both 3 and 4 bladed props, it doesn't change the size of the wake itself that much. Where you notice the biggest difference is in the rooster tail at 22' off. The 3...
