I skied a 2005 and wasn't all that impressed until 32 off my ski took off through the wakes like it was on greased lightning. On our lake water conditions amplify the trough and roster. Losing lots of the pull zone to that making shorter lines almost impossible. I have some rope cam photos at 32 off that show the depth of the trough (it's huge!) That's with no back seat and a 1/4 tank.
So today I am going to make a carbon fiber floor panel and carbon swim grid. Saves about 60 lbs right off the back of the boat. I've done some testing and the wake is waaaay better. I might have a water-logged hull too.
