    One term that I have seen recently that I am unfamiliar with is 'rope locker'. Is this a specific location specific to the boat or a general location that could be applied to any boat?

    As of now I am a fan of the 30:30 wave with autowake factory settings, but I have only spent 2 weekends with the boat. Autowake kept front tank at 92%, surf side 100%, and offside 90%.

    We upgraded to 1100# bags in the vdrive compartment, plus 1200 lead spread around the boat, and the wake shaper. The wave is really nice once you sink the rear of the boat.

    Interesting observations and I am not doubting you. The Nautique system seems to be a suck gate plus flow tabs built into one system as they seem to deploy at a 45 degree angle off that bottom...
