    The wakeplate in its most upright position will allow for more of the hull to sit deeper in the water, thus displacing more water and give you a bigger wake. However playing with eth settings between 3/4 of the way up and all the way should allow you to sculpt the wake. It would depend on which boat you have and how much weight you have in the boat at the time as to what the perfect setting is for you

    Cheers

    I'm riding 75' with plate half up...When your doing the plate you need to take into consideration speed, boat type and ballast. What is your set up?

    07 LSV 3 bag ballast I have been riding at 75 with the wake plate 3/4 to all the way up. 23mph seems to be the right speed. I like the steeper wake but it seems to get a little soft that far back.
