was trying to collect some data on how people run ballast in their boats and was hoping i could get some people to fill out this quick survey. Even put a little incentive at the end.

Done. A couple of things I thought of while taking the survey. Adding a question about horsepower could be useful. Maybe another about how many people you usually ride with. The number of people can change things drastically. I filled the survey out with what we usually ride with but on certain days we get crazy and really sac it out we probably add another 1100lbs.

Ian, I'm guessing the questions on ballast placement referred to my extra ballast? Its kinda hard to estimate where the ballast is in my boat since it runs the length of the hull...

yeah, extra ballast. Really the survey is supposed to be about where you place additional moveable ballast. Kind of like a reference guide for people who are looking for some tips.

Onlyinboards,
Your site is awesome. I finished my survey. I would ask a question about how many people are riding with you and where you place them. It does make a big difference.

188 total responses, thanks!

Someone pic a random number from 1 - 188 and that's who'll get the sac.

Also, i am almost done putting the results on www.fatsacstore.com - through Moomba I think is done. Some of the responses didn't quite add up but i figure that is because the questions weren't worded properly.

Did you go with #63?

If so, Patrick next time you see a white, black, and red Malibu with a titan tower on Lake Lewisville you are going to have to toss me a beer.

Billy, I ride with a few guys over by pier 121, mostly Matt G(pierce) on here and dwb.com. He has the Orange/Grey Tige RZ2 and keeps it at pier 121.
