I have a 01 Mobius w/ a 350 in the locker and a 550 and a 300 in the back. Any one else weigh differently?

I'm just starting my winter project of adding more weight to my 04 Mob LS.

I was looking at around 400# in the front locker, plus another 450# in the rear locker (yes, I've re-inforced the floor of that locker!). That's in addition to the factory tank under the back seat of roughly 400#.

You'll have to wait till next spring to find out from me if this worked out ok.

i thought weighing any boat was the same, 40/60 on direct drives, and 50/50 on v-drives.

350lbs in the nose

factory 300lbs in the locker

two 550lbs either side of the motor

one 550lb sack in the back.

Last weekend in my 2001 Air Nauti we had 400# stock in the back, 375# on top of that, 400# in the locker, 450# in the bow, 250# each side of the engine, and 170# lead in the bow. Grand total~2245# + 2 guys, 2 girls, 1 kid. The wake was nice, but I think we're going to go to side seats and raise it another 300-400#.

Anyway, you should probably add up front. Like they said : 60/40 back/front

Does anyone worry at all about the weight capacity of the boat as posted? Just from the standpoint of staying above the water line I would think some of this is getting a little crazy.

Nacho,

I rode in that boat before I bought mine. It's the main reason I went with mine. With that weight configuration, you get a large firm wake with a nice transition. I run 1000lbs in the locker and a 550lb on either side of the motor. My hull is essentially the same as the inboard version.

I put 350lbs in the locker of my Mobius until I found out that the fuel tank sits under the locker along with all the related hoses. Dealer said that the locker was designed to hold no more than a 100lbs evenly distributed. I have had the boat for two years and still can't find the perfect wake on it.

Reuben,
I have 2001 mobius. I use the Skylon Locker sack -claims to be 600lbs. I use a fly high tube sack under the rear seat along with some sand bags probably about 450-500lbs. I also have another 400lbs in easily movable weight. I tried to make it so all of my added weight was out of sight.

Be careful in adding a ton of weight in the back storage compartment. It was not designed for a lot of weight but can be reinforced. There have been issues with people messing up their gas tanks putting to much weight in the very back on the Mobius-this may have changed on newer models.
