Then there is the 200 pound person driving the boat on the starboard side. The warranty is not a problem for us.
Not sure I would agree that you have maxed out your boat from a ballast perspective. You have plenty of room to add 750 lb. Fat Sacs on top of your tanks in the rear, and an integrated bow sack that adds 800+ lbs. to the front. I rode on an 08 210 last year with surfers on both port and starboard, and all we used was the standard ballast tanks and passengers. The wake on either side was great.
Rather than make such a drastic and expensive modification to your boat, you may want to spend more time playing around with weight placement and adding more ballast. Also, you don't know what affect the blade will have on your surf wake - it may very well turn to crap with it engaged. That is a pretty high dollar gamble.
