I decided this was the year to automate my ballast system and nothing beats dropping the boat in and flipping a switch.
I still have to adjust the bags / hoses while filling but that's no biggie. Another luxury of having a system is being able to tweek the wake while underway or while picking up a rider after a fall. All around I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. The only downside was not being able to drain the sacs entirely at the end of the day, but I kinda knew that going into this fom reading other threads.
One thing I noticed while working on my system is how low the thru hulls are to the water line when fully loaded. I'm definately going to invest in some check valves for "all" my through hulls for both starboard / port sides. How is everyone else keeping water from coming in through the thru hulls? Mine are located about 1.25" below the rub rail.
Overall pretty stoked. I went with the 400# Fly High, 800 Tsuanmis all around. Pretty much what Jason over at Wakemakers suggested. If you're even thinking about a system, give them a call. Anyway here are a few picks.
