This off season I made myself some lead bricks for fine tuning the surf wake. From what some of you say, lead ballast is the trick to getting a great surf wake... now I'm a believer. Last winter I purchased about 1,000lbs of lead scrap. I cooked the lead down (turned out to be quite a chore and hastle) to make nice cake and bread loaf sized bricks. I am keeping half of the bricks for me, and selling the rest. So, I have 5 large bricks (about 13"x9"x2" )ranging from 47lbs to 85lbs, and 8 small bricks (about 8"x4"x2" ) that weigh 22lbs each that I want to sell. The bricks were painted with two coats of roofing paint then finished off with a coat of roll on bed liner (Herculiner). I would like to get $0.65/lb for the big bricks and $20 for the small bricks. With the Flat Rate boxes deal that USPS is doing, I can send one large brick or two small bricks (under 70lbs per box) for $9.85 anywhere in the continental US. Here are some pics. Send me a PM if interested.
