    Mark, I love watching your videos. I've seen them all on BOS. Where do you get your equipment? Is it custom made?

    Nice job...nothing like the first time.

    I ran the course for the first time 4 years ago. Now I'm hooked.

    That looks like a good solution, but maybe a bit complicated for me.

    Is there an easy way to simply plug the tubes and remove the ballast bag?

    Thanks.

    Unwanted water in ballast.

    Hi. We have the Gravity I ballast bag in the back of our 2007 Outback.

    I noticed that it kept filling with water. First, I made sure the little valve by the pump was set properly and it was. ...

    Last month I spent about 5 hours installing the FAE. I hope I did it correctly, but it seemed to ruin my slalom wake and didn't make much of a difference to engine noise.

    I would say that an Outback DD with tower and ballast is still a pretty good wakeboard boat. I know for my weak wakeboarding skills, the wake is plenty big enough.

    Oh man, that wake is big.
