I love how these boats are still "underground."  That wave is unreal!  The wakeboard wakes of the F22s has me knocking the dust off of my Murry....sweet not having to go 23+ to get a clean wake.

That's crazy.  What is your final bow weight?

integrated bow sack till the seats just start to pop up (shut it off when I see them move).  I doubt more than 400 in the sack?  Probably more like 300. Then I've got 150 in lead (100 port, 50 starboard) in the bow right behind the bow sack legs.

ok cool, I added more weight in the bow for this weekend, about 200 more than I had last time I was out...should about the same amount of weight as yours

That's awesome!  Looks like you have enough wave that you could almost turn all the way to the outside out of the camera shot!

i have a 9 yr old that likes to wakeboard so this got my curiousity up.  what speed does it take to get a clean wake on the f22?   i have a 23 TWB and about 20 mph it is 85-90% clean but its too fast for a 9yr old newbie wakeboarder in my opinion

Bill, out of curiosity, how fast do you pull your 9yo? Mine is 10 and we pull him at 18mph. Wave not the cleanest but not too bad.

I'm getting a clean wake on the F22 at 18MPH. 19-20 works great, people in the boat just need to move once planed out to even out a washed out side. That is without ballast. The wake is really nice.

Single biggest thing I tried out when I demoed the F22, as we are coming off of my Axis which was clean down to damn near surf speeds! hahaha   My Wife is coming back from ACL replacement, plus we ride with new folks a lot, so clean wake at lower speeds is important to us.

 

From what I saw, the F22 gives a much cleaner wake than the 23WB at slower speeds. I took the demo boat down to 18 or so and still got a relatively clean wake (pic below). No ballast and we had 6 adults/teens in the boat.

Demo..I pull him at 16 mph. Its washy but he is just learning so he is still learning to edge. But any faster and he freaks out lol

Im sure the washy wake doesnt help him have any confidence.

We run about 16-17mph for my son who is 10 this season. We weight the heel side until the wake is clean on that side. That's all hes comfortable jumping right now anyhow. He just rolls toe side.

I did the exact same thing as mxvet. Filled a bit of ballast until it is clean at 18mph since he's not doing toe side jump yet.

 

Back on the topic..........Mucker was not joking when he said the stainless steel is a bitch to drill. I guess I must have a crappy drill bit or something but i have no luck trying to drill thru the stainless steel.

 

Went with my plan B and mounted the pump on the side board like mxvet. Seems very solid.

Must use a kobalt bit drill it. I did it the hard way and don't want to tell you how many hours it took me to drill the four holes I needed. PIA

if I had to start all over, I would do the same thing just go about it a little differently.
