I keep reading about all of you guys putting ballast on the walkway, or in the nose or here or there, just curious to see what your interior looks like with these ballast bags everywhere. I have a hard times envisioning how you move around in the boat with all of this stuff everywhere and I think a few pics will help me with that.

I haven't put any ballast in my boat yet so I'm trying to see what's in store for me!

Is the Kokanee ballast if it's full? Or does it stay ballast when it's empty...Upload

Dang! Some of you guys are hardcore! I like the small bags of lead, those look easiest to move around!

Timmy, If you are looking for a ballast bag that you can move around and are easy to emtpy when your are done. I would get the Launch Block 85 lbs each. I have 4 of them and one Block XL 150 lbs.

http://www.bartswatersports.com/catalog.asp?P=8173 Here is what they look like. They are easy to stack because they are block shape too.

They are easy to move in and out of the storage compartments and when you are done you unscrew the bottom plug and let them drain. They are small and you won't throw your back out moving them.

???

wow

is that for surfing or boarding? maybe some people should learn to edge through the wake instead of relying on the wake to give them some pop?
