I do have the vent line on the top port of the bow sac, just not in the picture.

Looks good Bro! I was wondering myself where you got the 4 outlet switch. Way go. I ended up tieing my front empty pump into my existing floor empty switch. I rarely use one without the other anyway.They take the same amount of time to empty so it wasn't a big deal.
PWI as usual...

Spare tire mount
I should have done this sooner with a single axle...
Painted bracket direct from Boatmate. Thank you Hydrofoiljunky for the good deal on the spare wheel!

OJ wakeboard prop
Thanks to moombadaze's generous offer to swap props, I now have an OJ 14.25x14 vc wakeboard prop. There is a huge improvement in hole shot and holding speed with the ballast full. It was a much needed upgrade after adding the additional ballast. With all the ballast full the stock prop struggled to even plane out, and now it seems effortless.
The trade-off is that top speed is now 36 @ 5k RPM. It's also a noisy prop that sings and growls at various RPMs/speeds. This prop won't be for everyone, but if you run heavy and don't mind the top speed loss and noise, it's a huge improvement in hole shot. Thanks again, moombadaze!

I don't get the large range of results from people using the 14.25x14 OJ prop. I top out at 45mph and it only growls on take off for a few seconds and that's it.2007 Mobius LSV

I have no idea what the rpm's are at that speed as I hardly ever do it, twice to be exact. I can't imagine a cnc prop being inconsistent though.2007 Mobius LSV

FWIW, I have the same prop (14.25 x 14) from Acme and I don't get a growl from it. Top end is the same neighborhood though, about 36-38 @5k.
We had the same experience in our old Outback; 13x12 OJ had a growl on takeoff but the same prop from Acme didn't. The Acme props are thinner and probably not as tough as the OJ, so that may be the trade off.

Got the chance to put 15 hours on the boat over memorial weekend so I thought I'd update this thread with some additional info on a couple of these mods.
First off, the T1200s are FAST! System fill time (~2300 lbs) is right at 5 minutes. The bow and ski locker bags are full after 3 minutes and 2 minutes later the 750s in back are full. I'll be very happy with the fill setup once I figure out my leaking loop issue.
And what a difference a prop makes! It may be noisy but I love it already. 0-22 is effortless even when the boat is slammed. Just for kicks we piled 16 adults on the boat to see what kind of surf wave we could manage... oh and filled the 750 in back too. At rest the rub rail at the rear corner was even with the waterline. As you would expect, the wave was unreal. We don't surf much but I can see why people go so crazy with the ballast setups for surfing. Anyway, the boat had no problem at all with that weight thanks to the prop.
Finally, I can't say enough about how much the integrated bow sac adds. It really improves both wakeboarding and surf wakes. I've used it several times when I've got people sitting in the cabin area but none or kids only in the bow. Very worthwhile addition IMO, even if you manually fill/drain it.
Cliffs: Z5 is still my favorite addition to the boat, but the prop and bow sac are right up there.
