Marcham is correct. You won't be able to put the current wakebooster on your 2015. Hulls changed for the 19' boats, either 2018 or 2019.

The hull shape has changed and the placement of the stern u bolts is different. The wakebooster is attached to the ubolts.
Where does someone with a 2015 19’ hull find the scoop then?

The kit is the wakebooster plate, 2 cube fat sacs, and a pump. That is it. $1200. Honestly, I have it on my 195 and then added a 370 lbs tank for the floor. I put the cubes in each corner of the swim platform and then I place the bag directly on the floor (not ski locker) near passenger side. My boys and I (I am 180 lbs) can go ropeless. It isn't a 24 malibu with 7000 lbs, but it does just fine for us. Looking to add some weight to the front next summer to see what happens to everything.
I have the kit and recently bought a 365 lbs bag for the ski locker, if the floor a better spot vs the locker and why? Looks like we are trying the same thing. Also going to go with 100-155 lbs in the bow. I am 6'2" 190
@J-RAD hooked me up with this Slingshot, so far so good.

I had it in the locker the first time we did it and then the second/third time I put the bag on the floor but towards the passenger side up against the bench so I still had 370 lbs but it wasn't centered and more towards the side we surf on. I don't know if that was right or not. I just know that I didn't have to use up my ski locker (we have 3 slalom skis) and it really didn't seem in the way with 3 of us in the boat and 1 surfing. I need to figure out some weight for the front to see if I can lengthen that sweet spot out a bit or another bag that is more forward.

If I lived right on the lake, probably be easier to put it in the ski locker...problem is, we have 2 surf boards and 2 wakeboards tying up the racks and then 3 slalom skis which take up the ski locker. I need to figure out a bimini pocket/slot for the kneeboard and hopefully 1 surf board.
