    Probably nearly zero in the bow. As far back as you can for most if not all if that 1000#.

    We started with 300 in the bow then moved all back and it is better. We place 2 lead bags behind the driver on that little shelf, then the same on the opposite side. We placed 2 on either side of the v-drive transmission cut out, then 250 under each corner seat and the rest under the side seats.

    This weekend we explored going a little slower and liked the wave at 11-11.3 with surf tabs at 70ish and the middle tab 10-20.

    So after a summer with the makai what was the best setup you found for your boat? Weight location angles etc. TIA...

    What worked for us is all bags full. Wakemaker upgrade bags in the rear lockers. 400# of lead. 200 in the bow. 150 on drivers side. 50 on port.

    Goofy: 50/10/0. 10.8mph

    Regular: 0/0/40. 10.8mph

    The only variable was crew. If we took friends out (2 more adults) then the above is all we would do. But, if it was just my family we would throw a 800# bag on the floor and fill it about 1/2 way up.

    The pictures are 5' boy riding goofy. And a 6' boy riding regular for referance.

    The wave kicked the sh!t out of my buddies boat. A 2019 Natique wave looks nice, but is super steep and harsh....(Just my opinion....)

    Did any of you guys with the Wakemaker's upgraded rear bags have to add any additional reinforcement to the engine divider panels? Did you have any problems with them?

    The panels have metal reinforcements from the factory. I haven't had any problems.
