    I agree totally. Many of the people dropping $150k into a wakeboard boat, don't need a boat that big to hold the large amounts of ballast they can carry, but rather to accommodate their overly inflated egos.

    subfloor ballast cost money. keep adding things like that and before you know it, you have a 100k moomba(although I have heard the mojo pro can sticker up to 91k which I will never get from a moomba- that's competing against a whole new class of manufacturers).
    not having seen one in person yet, the basic concept and size of this boat looks to be a good move for moomba even if it isn't the length others were looking for but with the basic hull done, it seems that they could add a few feet and end up with a 24.5ft boat pretty easy if market demands it. just not sure that the 24ft+ market is one worth going after.

    When SC mentioned the maximum stock ballast that they can put into the boat they know owners will add a bunch more. I'm sure SC tested the Max with add on ballast to see what it is capable of doing and any issues that may arise from excessive loading. Equal displacement and equal rear hull shape will produce an equal wake. Anything above the waterline is bling. The only thing remaining is the wake diversion method and that is technology development that separates the companies.

    what motor and prop combo did they use to get this amount of weight on plane? this is the setup that I want to run in a max!!!!! I'm in the process of getting my boat on the market so I can have a max in the garage

    I watch the inboard numbers clime every year on my little pond. They get bigger too. After 12 years with the same boat, buy one you can trailer if you trailer, and store inside but otherwise yeah big. People and stuff. I am usually out with a Supra. Two boats are way better than one really big one if you can swing it with drivers, dock and storage. With this one, I'd be scared to forget to empty a sack someplace.

    This is the best part of new boats and stock ballast. I've always used stock ballast for wake and never had a problem with any of my tricks being landed. I actually think people loading their boats aren't doing any good and losing the true form and line tension for proper wakeboarding. Just recently I had the Helix out with stock and was blow away with the tricks being landed by some friends. Now surfing I can see the need for additional weight but we also have surfed stock and didn't have a problem.
