Anyone have any pics of how they have their rear ballast setup in a v210? Looking at getting one and it only has front. I am going to want to add rear. Should I go with sacs or tanks? Also has anyone installed Perfect Pass in a V210? How dificult is it?
Thanks

Easy install on the PP... hardest part is cutting the hole for the p-wheel.

As for ballast set-up:

about 1500lbs in the front and 1000(two 500's)lbs in the rear is the best set-up.
second best is just running 1500 lbs in the bow.

The V210 likes most of its weight in the front.
if the one you're looking at has the stock center sac, contact Pete at letsgoride.com and he can set you up with a center sac that fills the whole ice chest area all the way to the front for about 120.00 shipped. Best sacs I've ever seen/used. The stock sac is about 400lbs and isn't going to do the job alone.

Last one the vent I used a "t" fitting works great except when we surf.

I have the same setup with 550 pounds of lead in the front the 700 pound sac in the floor and 500 pounders in the rear. The rears are custom square sacs which fit really well. The photo with the guy riding has system full and 3 in the boat but we are riding in shallow water (about 6 foot deep). It gets kinda lippy and vert with the rears this full but is fun. The photo with the lady is with 6 in the boat and rears are half full and we are riding at a deep lake, much rampier with this setup and wake gets way bigger due to the deep water.
Rears 1/2 full, deep lake
Rears full, shallow lake
