I'm looking into a 2005 LSV with the Monsoon. <BR> <BR>I've read that re-proped the Monsoon can handle most weight situations on the boat. I'm planning on replacing the rear tanks with 750's, 400-500 lbs of POP bags or lead (middle of boat closer to the bow) and possibly a sac in the walkway before the bow. I don't plan on using the wedge except for surfing (although that might change). So roughly 2500-3000 of weight in the boat. I plan on a normal crew of 4-6 but will sometimes have 10-12 on the boat. Will the Monsoon handle all this weight? Will the wake really get THAT big? Or will I still need more weight? <BR> <BR>Looking for opinions for experienced riders who have ridden behind this boat with stock ballast and with lots of weight. Thanks so much!

My experience with the lsv has been incredible. Favorite boat of all time. You should have no problem loading the crap out of that boat as long as you re-prop it. My buddy has a 05 and the usual weighting goes as this: <BR>-full stock ballast including rear tanks, middle tank and bow tank <BR>-roughly 400 lbs of lead spread evenly under the seats in the cockpit area <BR>-a bow sack, a 750 on the floor towards the walkway, and 2 cube sacks on either side of the engine <BR>-and with the lsv i always like the wedge but im sure you can substitute with more weight. <BR>This boat was running the stock prop but recently re-propped and gets up even quicker

^^^^ plus the Acme 1235 will solve all your problems.

Thanks Jason. Hearing what kind of weight others are running really helps to figure out how I would like to set it up. It definately like weight in the bow I see. I plan on upgrading to the 1235 for sure, thanks. Any chance of pics with all that weight?
