150 in the rear locker and 100kg lead in the bow is a good start
if you want it bigger try 150 L in the back ski compartment, 100kg lead under the back seat and 150l bag in the bow

The 330hp won't even feel it, there is just so much torque there

When seating arrangement allow we put a 250 on back seat 150 in rear locker and 150 - 200 in the nose!

Have also had that with 5 people in the boat (3 up the front 1 either side of engine). Wake was joy, wasn't in any rush to get out of the hole though!

New member and not too familier with forums - like to share a picture of our recently aquired Espression. Has the optional 6.2 motor and Perfectpass. Currently experimenting with 2 150 litre sacks in the front, in adittion to the 250L centre + 250L rear inbuilt. Seems to produce a useful increase in wake and keeps the nose down a bit. If the picture does not work, I may need some instructions in plain English - could not understand the FAQ on uploading images

What a good looking boat dad. Must say it produces a mad wake with 800L of ballast and 10 people in the boat.

Forgot to add, highly recommend the trim plate. Our Expression has one and it's very handy shaping the wake for different purposes.

When you adjust the trim plate up does that lift the nose as well though :?:

that's what we ran all the time in both our old sorrentos and was a sweet sweet wake. We actually removed the rear seat to make it easier to fit the 250 fatty

New Sorrento

Postby 14ADRNLN » Thu Apr 16, 2009 3:34 pm

This is my new ride. Had it built more as a ski boat than boarding fit out.
2009 Matrix Sorrento. Specs; 330hp Black Scorpion Merc, Trim plate, Stargazer GPS Perfect Pass 3 event, Fusion Audio w amp and sub and ipod dock, driver and observer heaters, tower lights, extended swim deck and the list goes on...
A big pat on the back to Neal and John at Matrix for their efforts with this one. It's one awesome boat and the closest I have tested and experienced as the perfect crossover. With some extra ballast the wakeboarding ramps are quite reasonable but drop the throttle and the trim tab and the wash for slalom skiing at 30mph+ is equally as good as the best tournament boats. Very happy.


Cheers
Scott

Looks really good, Scott - well worth the wait. Notice you have board racks on this one. We have put about 40 hours on the Expression + added tower speakers ( and board racks!). Very happy with it. :D :D .Just put it in for the (slightly overdue) 150 hour service.
Just like to reinforce your comments on the service fom Neal and John for Matrix - even though we are only second owners of the boat nothing has been too much trouble for them - they always seem to make time to answer any queries - the retro fit of the board racks was done in less than a day.

regards
Rob

Hi Rob,
Glad to hear you are happy with the Expression. It was an awesome boat and I'm sure you'll get plenty more hours of satisfaction from it. I must admit that seeing the pictures that you posted of it does make me miss it.

I got combo racks with the Sorrento (half ski, half board) so we have the flexibillty of storing both.
It was deifnitely worth the wait!

Happy Boating Matrix style.
Cheers
Scott
