  1. Falcon V Ballast Setup

    I should add. You need to duct tape the vent on the surf side to prevent water getting in.
  2. Falcon V Ballast Setup

    We have changed our set up since the last time I posted. We use a wakeshaper I made myself, fill both factory tanks, put a 400lb sac in the rear port locker, have the 1,100 in the starboard with 250lbs of lead, another 250 lbs of lead behind the driver seat, and a 400lb sac in the bow. We flip it for the regular side but only need a 750 in the port and the 400 in the starboard. No bags on the seats and both waves are excellent. My wife surfs around 10.6 and I surf around 11.2. we love our boat. Check it out. https://vimeo.com/232361760
  3. Heading to Lake Ouachita Arkansas in the morning for a week of houseboating and surfing.

  4. Your boat doesn't have a cap and rotor so i would definitely not trust the dealer. $170 per hour could get expensive if they don't know what they are looking for.
  5. Had one of the best days surfing ever. Finally have the wave dialed in using the suckgate I made. It was just my wife and I in the boat. We had 250lbs of lead in the starboard locker with the 1,100lb Fat Sack full, both hard tanks full, another 250lbs of lead behind the drivers' seat, a 750lb Fat Sack in the port locker not quite filled all he way, and a 400lb Fat Sack on the floor in the bow. No sacks on the seats. Put the suckgate as low in the water as it would go and as far back. The lead has been a huge improvement. Here is some video we took at the end of the day.
  6. 50lbs bags of lead

    I ordered some from Wakeballast. There is a crew deal for $15% off. I placed the order on Wednesday last week and they are scheduled to arrive on Thursday. Great communication so far.
  7. 'Lead'. Does it rust?

    Thanks. I ordered them from Wake Ballast. Got the crew deal.
  8. I ordered 500lbs of 'lead' - which I realize is actually steel. Has anyone had a problem with it rusting? I don't want to stain the carpet.
  9. Wipe out pic and videos

    Haha. I told her to stop because the guy in the other boat - who I didn't realize was a friend at the time - was waiving his arms around like a mad man.
  10. ....I think it was actually the red one I use https://www.goldeagle.com/product/iso-heet-fuel-line-antifreeze-injector-cleaner
  11. Wipe out pic and videos

    Had a friend waive at us from another boat and thought he was telling us to stop. Should have coordinated with my wife who was driving better. Lol
  12. That happens to ours if we don't duct tape the fuel cap. I think it's water getting in the fuel. I added a product called Heet https://www.goldeagle.com/product/heet-gas-line-antifreeze-water-remover that took care of it the last couple times it happened.
  13. Ok does 'regulars' mean goofy footers not apply or show up regularly we'll be here?
  14. You can calibrate the Provision using a smart phone GPS speed app. Is your brother listing the boat still? We still listed ours just not as much. Removed a 400lb sack from the surf (goofy) side, filled the 250lb tank on the opposite side and filled a 750lb sack in the opposite side rear locker to about 3/4 full. We had about 1,750lbs on the surf side and about 850lbs on the opposite side. We used to have 2,150lbs on the surf side and none on the opposite side.
  15. I put it right below the 'Falcon V' emblem.
