19ft Yamaha Ar. 650lb ballast on rear 120lbs of sand on surf side. 120lbs of sand in the bow. 10.7 mph. and 5 people aboard (About 550-600lbs) spread throughout.

Rider 190lbs plus wet suit, on a slingshot coaster.

Note, I had to step up to the bow on take off to get the boat up to 10.7.

I also have a home made wake booster, but the boat wont get up to speed with it.
