Check out picture #2 on the Outback V. Notice the water coming up between the transom and platform? #3 shows this as well. If you look at the gallery on any of the others you don't see water coming through.

What gives? wakeplate in a certain position?

I don't see it happening on the LS in the pictures or videos and I don't recall seeing it happen while being towed behind it either. I would think that maybe the V-drives are sitting just a little lower so I would image that the edge of the ski platform is catching the water as it rolls up from under the boat.

It appears that the spray is a result of the wake plate upper lip. It would route a little bit of water up and between the transom and deck. The Outback pics are similar. Other boats in their gallaries may not have a wake plate installed during the photo shoot.
