|For added "hidden" ballast could you pump water into your bilge (hull) as opposed to having water sacs taking up floor space. Then you could have a switch on your bilge pump to have it it, as oppsed to the little flipper thingy that automatically pumps out water when it detects too much water in your bilge. |
Pump it into your hull, bilge it out when your done.
I am not talking about 1500 lbs of water here, more like an extra 500lbs to assist the stock ballast front and rear tanks in a Mobius LS.
|Try it let us know what happens |
|New Hidden V-Drive Ballast- 500 lbs of moving (splashing) ballast. |
When you take off it will run to the back helping to prevent a too-rapid pull for the rider and possibly lubricating all your engine components with nice cool water. If the engine survives its exterior cooling shower, the water will run forward, carrying all that hard to clean engine grease/oil to your interior carpet/ski locker where it is much easier to access.
Not a good idea but it could be marketed as the latest and greatest:
