    Not sure where in Can you are but flowrite is in michigan. You can order direct from them and the fittings are 50% cheaper than wakemakers

    But it will be Monday/Tuesday before you get them right? Waiting is the hardest part.

    Hy, I have some pictures of my ballast installation (same setup as wolfeman)

    Here is a maybe better picture of the Boshworth valve :



    And I add this valve inline with the fill of the 370lbs under the seat so I don't have to disconnect any thing :



    And here are some pictures of my ACME 1235 installation (I was today) and I will test it tomorrow !
    I hope it is better than stock because the size and pitch are almost the same (14.5 vs 14.25) :

    trmaggie98, I'm sure you will enjoy with these ballast !! But You will probably change the prop due to extra weight...
    For my 2012 mojo the stock prop was 14.25" x 14.5" and the ACME 1235 is a 14.5" x 14.25" so quite the same. I would choose the ACME 2079 with 12" of pitch ! I will try my prop today, hope it's better otherwise I will go for the 2079 and sell my 1235. Give you feedback tomorrow.
    One more thing, I was always wakesurfing with a lower speed than everybody (same boat, same ballast...) so I checked the speed with a GPS and it was wrong. The display was about 2mph lower than real speed! So I was at a correct speed when wakesurfing (about 10-11 mph) so I adjust the displayed speed with the menu -> adjust paddlewheel or something like that and now it's fine

    Gurt, did you glue the fittings into your fat sacs? Mine spin and spin and don't seem to tighten. Did you use pliers or just tighten by hand?

    Thanks,

    What engine do you have?

    I have the 350 surf engine, run 3K of ballast and 10 people with no issues wake surfing. No cavitation or anything.
    I have no issues pulling people up.
    I am also still only using 3.5-4 gallons an hour.

    Hy, no I didn't glue the fittings. I just tighten by hand but it spin also. The fittings on the stock ballast were glued by the ex-owner. I will glue them I think because water flows by the vent when full.
    About the prop, the result is good now with the ACME 1235 ! with the stock prop, I could wakesurf without problem with the ballast full (~3k) but I had some vibrations and the boat was not really able to go faster than wakesurf speed. The wave look better with the ACME prop (or it is psychologic...)
