Just bought a 2018 F21 tomcat. Not very experienced w surf boats. Pretty happy w the wave it makes but wouldn't mind having some more length to it. I believe hard ballasts add 1800 lbs, and 2 plugnplay bags 700lbs each. So total of 3200 lbs. No additional weight other than passengers (usually 3 plus surfer).
I have a couple questions hoping to get some advice........
The first is that the bow rides really high, too high in my opinion. I am planning on buying lead weight to put into the front and seeing how that works. Does anyone have experience if thats the best solution? How much
This is what I surfed on my 2014 F22 with slappers: an additional 1000# bags in each rear locker and about 500# bag in the bow. fill all bags and built in ballast tanks. Drain non surf side Ballast tank to clean up wave and list the boat to the surf side. Prop may need to be adjusted per your elevation to get to surf speeds.
I found that out back in 2014 when I purchased my boat. I brought an extra 800# of ballast bags for the surf side to get a good wave during the dealer demo. The boats shack thought then wave worked stock but with an extra 800# on the surf side we found out how good t
