    I agree, here’s a link to the one I used if you’d like to give it a try. Cheers! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0792N1C78?psc=1&ref=yo_pop_mb_pd_title

  4. FI 23 Surf settings

    Ok great, thanks for sharing. We haven’t quite figured out if the fi likes bow weight or not. We started with just 400lbs in the transom lockers but felt like the platform was almost 2ft under water and the locker would flood when coming to a stop. Bow seemed to ride high so we kept the center tank full and used more stinger. (60-80) We then moved all the lead under the seats just infront of the pnp’s which seemed to work better. We’ve since added another 160lbs far forward in the bow and found we can go lower on the stinger (30-50) which makes sense since the higher stinger setting was countering the transom weight before. How about your surf settings? Still got a lot more playing around to do but so far out best results were achieved with pnp’s full, 80% on the counter Ram, 30-50 on the stinger, QS@65 reg, 75 goofy and lead weight spread almost evenly throughout the boat. Cheers & thanks again for sharing.

    Hi, Any updates on your lead placement and surf settings? We are heading out today with 560lbs of lead and hope to spend an hour or 2 dialing it in. Thanks!

    Calling all Fi23 owners! With it being such a new boat, how about we get a discussion going to share all mods, tips & tricks related to the Fi23. Here’s some of our fun mods so far to get things started. Cheers!

    Fantastic, great info, thanks for sharing!
  8. Purchasing an FI 23

    Fantastic looking wave! What surf settings (Speed, QS, Stinger, Cats) were you running?
  9. New FI23 or used RI237

    Joel, We went the same way. Here’s another option for your ballast bags: http://www.pop-products.com/our-products.html It’s the best price I’ve found for steel, only difference being that they’re 40lb bags vs 50lb bags and not as pretty as the wake ballast bags which doesn’t bother me since they’ll be out of site.

    That’s awesome, it’s crazy how different they perform closer to sea level. We surf between 4500ft - 6000ft out here but when we took the boat down to Lake Mead (around 1000ft) it felt like it was running a supercharger!
  11. New FI23 or used RI237

    Technically only .75 closer to the hull, I honestly haven’t measured the gap yet but it’s not close enough to worry about hull burn etc. It’s one of the first things I looked at on the Fi as we had a tough time with clearance on our FS33 when trying to run more aggressive props. Thankfully it’s not an issue on these new boats.
  12. New FI23 or used RI237

    Here’s a link to the prop if you want to give it a try (which I highly recommend if you’re at elevation). It’s the Acme 3145: https://www.wakemakers.com/acme-3145-propeller.html Again, only limiting factor with the 409 is the 1-1/8th shaft which just has fewer 16” props available compared to the 1-1/4 shafts, but the 16x13 is a champ!
  13. New FI23 or used RI237

    Nope, 16x13, that’s how we’re running them here in Utah, it’s a fantastic setup!
  14. New FI23 or used RI237

    Yup, no engine upgrade required. 16x13 is what we tested on the Fi23 out here in Utah, ran beautifully, surfed at barely 3200rpm on the 409! Only limiting factor on the 409 is the 1 1/8 shaft, when you step up to the 450 or H6 I believe it’s a 1 1/4 shaft which has a couple more prop options in 16” diameter like the 16x15 which was perfect on the H6 237 we tested.
