    Yes even a 4* wedge mounted up will get him over a 20 ft rooter tail and probably much higher. And more HP never hurts.

    boat will react totally different with alot of up wedge and a high rooster, it might just hook a rh or lh when you're not prepared so BE CAREFUL

    this pic is my boat with a 4 degree wedge, just crusing in the middle divertor ratcher position, when i've got it full up and using up wedge, the boat throws a monster tail but is also a handful to drive straight(see my avitar for what could happen)
