My experience with the lsv has been incredible. Favorite boat of all time. You should have no problem loading the crap out of that boat as long as you re-prop it. My buddy has a 05 and the usual weighting goes as this:
-full stock ballast including rear tanks, middle tank and bow tank
-roughly 400 lbs of lead spread evenly under the seats in the cockpit area
-a bow sack, a 750 on the floor towards the walkway, and 2 cube sacks on either side of the engine
-and with the lsv i always like the wedge but im sure you can substitute with more weight.
This boat was running the stock prop but recently re-propped and gets up even quicker
