Does anyone have experience in adding weight to this boat? I have been using two fat sacks in the rear ski lockers and making sure I have passengers in the bow...anyone have suggestions on positioning of weight with this boat with good results?

I can't quite remember, it is a v-drive boat 21'6" length, factory ballast tanks...

Well if its a v-drive, I would say add about 350lbs on each side of the engine and maybe 500 in the bow, plust the stock ballast. That should give u a really clean wake.

Must be the Elite V drive
Sounds right I might go with a little more in the back and less in the front but that
would be personal preference

I have a 2002 Elite V and only use center ballast. You have to be careful with adding too much weight in the back because of the spray pockets. Using just the center ballast has worked great for me and produces a great wake.

The center ballast on that boat is 25 gallons = 200lbs. Not enough in my opion to make a good wake. I also have an 01 elite V and have about 550lbs on each side of the engine and another 5500lbs in bow. The wake is good with two riders in the boat. If more are in the boat i have another person sit in the bow. I find the weight is best about 60% rear 40% front. It seems to clean up really well at 25 - 26mph at about 75 ft.
Too much weight in the back and the wake gets really peaky, i like mine more of a ramp.

I was right there with you until I got the the 5500lbs in the bow. Man Centurion builds a solid boat to cary that much weight int the bow

I am sure you must have ment 550lbs
