So we started playing around with the ballast we have for the boat for the first time the other day.. I recently bought 2 550lb sacs and added that to the 2 750+ sacs I had (I'm guessing on the size of those bc I really have no idea how much they hold).. If you fully fill them one will easily fill the walk way between the window width wise and run pretty much to the mid section of the bow cushions from where the walk thru cushion starts.. Any ways
. We put the two 550# sacs in the back, one on each side of the motor. Then filled up one of the 750? sacs and laid it on the walk thru seat, then partially filled up the other 750 and laid it across the very front of the bow area. The wake was good and clean for the most part but we really had to increase our speed from where we have been riding to get the boat to stay on plane while we rode.. Is this something that is just normal for weighting a boat or do I have to much in the rear/not enough in the front??
The Pic is one of the sac's I'm calling a 750 that we filled up another day.. Maybe someone can tell me what size it is by seeing it..
Thanks for any help or input yall!!!
