I'm looking into a 2005 LSV with the Monsoon.
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?
Looking for opinions for experienced riders who have ridden behind this boat with stock ballast and with lots of weight. Thanks so much!
