    Hello. Any suggestions how to make my boat wake bogger without balancing? I have the trim tabs but i dont really know, if they have something to do with the wake. Thanks

    Big wakes make big launch ramps so wake boarders can catch big air.
    Hellatiously lousy fuel efficiency.

    Almost the opposite of trim tabs. 4217461L.jpg

    Try googling "wake shapers"
    Lots of options
    +ballast bags
    +down force foils
    +wedges
    +side plates
    Cheap to hundreds of buckeronies

    In your other thread you were commenting on the size of the spray, and here also you say "just to make it more visible". If you just want the spray then that is easy, use something like the jet skis use - it is a small "scoop" that redirects some of the jet upwards into a spray.
