What year did Correct Craft begin their autoballast with the Super Air? When did they begin adding the front tank? How important is having the front tank?

Like the pic Bruce.....nice set up! My friend runs a '99 SAN with factory rear ballast. I believe this was the first year for the Super Airs to come standard with rear ballast? I am pretty sure '97 was the first year for the Airs to have factory ballast incorporated. And if memory serves, I believe '02 was the first year for the optional front tank on the SAN? Importance of front tank varies by rider but I do not go one session without loading the front----plenty. It provides less "rampy" wakes and creates a nice firmness up the face(having more hull surface displaced)and provides better planing characteristics, weight distribution and ride--for both passengers and boarder. Of course, slowing or turning back into the wake to pick up a downed rider can create a lot of unexpected "tsunamis" over the bow! However, driving proficiency will always solve this subtle nuisance. :-)
Hope this helps.......
