Back in the day long before fat sacs. We used coolers strapped to the teak with bungies, then progressed to cooler and two trash cans full of water with the lid duck taped shut. Then we had a queen sized water bed in the back. That got a little crazy when you would turn for a doubleup and all the water ran to one side of the boat. Also, bought rubbermade boxes and filled them with sand. The boxes were about 75 lbs and could be moved around when we didn't have an extra person in the boat to get the wake even.
We have come alot ways with ballast systems and custom sacs since that time.
