Now that most of our friends have boats, it is usually just my wife and I when we go out on the river. I am looking to add a little extra weight. Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks.

You can either run these: <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.wakeside.com/page/w/PROD/wakeboard_boat_ballast/fly_high_nautique_sacs_W708" target="_blank">http://www.wakeside.com/page/w/PROD/wakeboard_boat_ballast/fly_high_nautique_sacs_W708</a> <BR> <BR>if you have wedge tanks or these: <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.wakeside.com/page/w/PROD/wakeboard_boat_ballast/fly_high_v_drive_sac_W701" target="_blank">http://www.wakeside.com/page/w/PROD/wakeboard_boat_ballast/fly_high_v_drive_sac_W701</a> <BR> <BR>if you have the flat tanks... <BR> <BR>In the front you can run the modified version of this sac: <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.wakeside.com/page/w/PROD/wakeboard_boat_ballast/fly_high_integrated_bow_sac_w711" target="_blank">http://www.wakeside.com/page/w/PROD/wakeboard_boat_ballast/fly_high_integrated_bow_sac_w711</a> <BR> <BR>The modified version will have one side cut off because the stock bow cooler interferes with it. <BR> <BR>A lot of people will tell you to run lead or pop-bags, but I prefer to leave my ballast at the lake and save gas, vehicle wear and tear and boat wear and tear by not carrying extra weight around all the time, but that's just me.

Thanks, that is what I had in mind.

I would suggest pulling your hard tanks out completely and replacing them with the 750 lb Pro X sacs. Keep the standard belly tank, and have an additional 500 lb sac for the bow and maybe a fat brick for the cockpit to tweak the wake. You can always not fill em up all the way, but soon you will want to anyway. I figure I get about 500-600 in the rear sacs each until they start blowing out of the vent tube, and the bow weight is very important, you really need to add as much to the bow as you did the rear over what was stock. <BR> <BR>Nice thing is we regained the ability to put boards in the lockers when the ballast is empty. You still get room when they are full for vests, etc.
