    Default 2019 mojo displacement

    I am new to the forum and in the process of dialing in our 2019 mojo and I have a question about displacement. 9 out of 10 times it's only myself and gf on the water so displacement is hard to achieve with only us on the boat, the AMP / "Potential" never makes it to the hashes and it seems to have very little push. Would the easy solution be replacing human weight with lead bags or something similar? ie: 500-600 lb etc on the port side (we all surf port)

    ps: I may not be asking this question with the correct forum protocol... my bad

    Thanks,

    Iím using a combination of 50 lb bags I can easily move around, and an external bag (650lb Sumo Max) and pump that really helps if there are just a few of us out.

    I believe that boat has 3000lbs ballast standard. You need more weight. Look around and there are tons of threads talking about dialing in wave and the common denominator is to add more ballast. Guys here have at least 4k# of ballast. Your boat has plenty of freeboard and can handle lots more weight. That's what it all boils down to. I would suggest distribute weight evenly and displace as much water as you can get away with and then use your surf tabs , wakeplate and speed to shape the wave. That way it all looks clean and you do not have a ton of tubes and pumps and bags lying around and tripping over. I agree external bags are effective and work well, I just like clean organized look. Plus, if you use your tabs then you can switch goofy to regular seemelessly without having to move bags around. I am able to switch port to goofy side quickly and make transfer (while holding rope) and its fun to try different sides. You cant do that if you have a one sided list. Consider upgrading your rears to 1100lbs in addition to adding lead for a total of minimum 4k#.
