Centurion C4 ballast set up
Hey my buddy just recently boat a 2006 C4 avalanche with the storm 1 series set up. (250 I think in the middle for ballast) we are wondering how difficult and what to run in the lockers and the bow. We have been looking at wakemakers an were are Goin to do the intergraded bow sack, but for the lockers we could put the fly high 750s on each side or we could go a little smaller with like 500 on each side. Need some help from centurion guys on how to make this wake nice.

We surf some but mostly wakeboard.

Thanks for the help

have a buddy with an 2007 (same hull). currently he has 750s in each locker and a 650 in the bow. (he removed the belly sac after it started leaking). uniquely, this boat loves weight in the rear (insert joke here). where my 230 would porpoise, he has no problems. with everything full, you have to run 24+ mph, but the wake is huge. there's little ramp (like hitting a wall), but still very fun to ride. he is adding a belly sac this week (or soon), which we predict will add ramp with little affect on the size/height. other value for the 750s, you can always use them for surfing. this boat has a great surf wake.

I recommend the 750's in each locker, just don't fill them all the way up. You might want to hop on centurioncrew.com and do some searching around. They have tons of info on weighting the Avy there.

750s in the rear for sure. I doubt that an integrated bow sac alone will be enough bow weight with the 750s full in the rear.. If you can support it with a filler of some sort, the triangle Bow sac in front plus the 750s in the rear should be a good starting point. That boat is probably a little sensitive with side-to-side weight, so you might want to have a fat brick or some led to move around as needed.
