I will be test driving a Supreme V208 very soon.

I'd like to know how people are weighting these boats? (and what line length are you riding?)

I have plenty of sacs to bring, and I would like to minimize the time filling and moving sacs around during the test drive.

Thanks!

fill factory ballast
put 350lbs in each rear hatch...
300 lbs under each seat in the bow...
and maybe 100lbs under observers seat... just to balance...

then play with tab...

22-23mph... 75-80ft rope

i dont have any experience with them but from the looks of the hull design i would try to weight the boat up pretty evenly. if it were my boat i would put 500 lb sacks on either side of the motor, a 500 in the walkway to the bow, a 500 across the seats sideways in the bow and go from there. probably add about 1000 in lead throughout on top of the factory ballast. from what i hear it produces a huge great wake this way
