How much is too much electrical ballist?
Guys after I started on my sound system I have added + added + added, well here is my issue as of right now....

I have as of right now 650# of electronic ballist(subs amps batteries wiring) 540# of which is on the Starboard(drivers side).. With myself 240# and a full cooler 170# that will be 950# ballist on the starboard side with the bags empty... What is that going to look like in the water.. Will it look sacked like for surfing? I can adjust the weight while riding or surfing, I have 1100# locker bags & 1180 front... I'm more worried about getting it on and off the trailer...

Anyone ever ran into this issue? or have a pic of 950# +/- on one side?

You've got a 24 foot boat, so you probably won't see too much tilt. I'm on a 23'7" and I don't recall the tilt being "noticeable" below 1000lbs... It's a bit hard for me to say what is noticeable though as I like to get that boat on her side.

Definitely not sacked out though.

Get some fat friends to sit on the other side or use led to move around to adjust for the weight difference.

If loading becomes an issue, then keep the port side 1100 bag full until you are on the trailer. Other than that, I do not think this will be an issue on your boat, you will definately have to keep your starboard side locker bag pretty empty to compensate.
