    Default wakeplate travel and flow 3.0?

    playing on my boat in my shop last night, decided to take a look at the wakeplate travel, more out of curiosity, as i wondered if you could accidentally flip surf on and damage the plate on the trailer.

    well, surf tabs wont hit the trailer, but will hit the transom straps if they are still on. But I ended up with a couple concerns/questions:

    for the Flow 3.0, do the added actuators only activate in the water, or when autowake is set? they didnt move with the surf side switch on.

    MAIN CONCERN I noticed the wake plate actuator only went out about 1-2 inches, AND travel stopped at about 30-35% is this normal?

    If i ran the WP to 0, it would re-zero, and travel would stop at 65-70. and if i ran to 100 (which is default when you turn key on) travel would stop at about 35-30.

    wondering if anyone else noticed this, and if it is normal operation.

    also noticed the settings (3 lines) button is non responsive... i dont think the boat needs to be running for it to work?

    Autowake does some dark magic stuff, so I won't try to explain it. But, I do know that you have no control over the little secondary tabs on the flow 3. They are fully controlled by the magic of the boat

    thats what i was thinking... the main WP is my main concern, not sure if its a calibration issue, or if the actuator is bad

    It was my understanding that your displacement played a roll in the tabs as well so there would be a different response in the water with all your ballasts full etc.....

    Whatís the point of the secondary tabs on the 3.0 system? Could you add small L shaped pieces of aluminum to the 2.0 system to give it extra yaw? Which is what Iím assuming the 3.0 system does.

    That's exactly what that extra tab does. Give it Yaw that is. I am sure welded tabs could create yaw. Some of the tab systems out there do have a unique shape to them to do that. The trick is finding out how much to give it. Depending on your hull shape, the tab shape would be different too. Yaw is used to clean up the wave a bit if needed. The adjustable flow 3 system allows the yaw to be varied depending on your ballast load and speed. Again, some of that "magic formula" . Or what SC would prefer to call Research! And it is.

    I wish we had some of that equation. I would mind drilling a few holes in my surf tabs to add some l shaped aluminum if I knew it would help and not be a waste of time.

    ok, so figured out that the settings button works, i was just not pushing hard enough. They used a thick rubber button to push a tactile switch, so there is subtle click when pressed hard enough.

    I did find in the settings menu surf and yaw plate reset. but that looks like it is only if they get stuck down or something.

    anyone know what the dealer options are? I am still wondering about the travel for the wakeplate. Can anyone verify length of travel, and/or if it moves 0-100 or are others getting limited 0-70 or 30-100 movement?

    honestly better off trying the GSA style, and add some fins to the tabs to help direct the water out more. ultimately though, the basic dimensions of the wave are all based on displacement and hull shape.
