Looking to add some weight to my 13 Tomcat.

I have asked several questions over the last couple weeks (heater, and surf plate)
and have got great advice and lead to other threads other places about each. So, I am looking to figure out how to add some weight to make the surf wave that much better.

From what I have found online I need weight up more in the center of the boat. So my thought is to find a bag that is surf locker and up under the passenger side seating.

So any thoughts or have you done this to your MB? Have a pickle fork and love it, and will love it a lot more once I get the plate installed but I still think I need more weight back there. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I would run an integrated bow sack, which is 600 but only holds about 450-500, 600-900 under the seats almost all the way back or in the rear locker, and the factory surf side full! That will hunt!

Run Enzo sacks in each locker/underneath seats

We ran an A frame sack underneath the front seats

Thats what we ran in our tomcat and had a MASSIVE surf wave!

Run stock and enzo bag full surf side, run non surf side about 1/2 full stock, run full in front.

Get up on plane between 11-11.5, Trim tab about 1/4 down, drain non surf side until clean..Presto thats it!

Check out MBboatowners and people will steer you in the right direction!

This is what our wave looked like:

that is hilarious! We literally have the EXACT same boat setup. Mine is a 13 but color choices are exact. Guess mine has the new tower too.

So that nose bags fits up there?

No way! You didn't buy my old boat did you? lol

The nose bags will fit, It will push the seats up a bit when you fill it all the way but I usually get around 500 in the front, 1400 in each rear locker.

A tab will help clean up the wash in the middle of the wave... It will help you shape the wave but its not a requirement.... I got a horse stall mat and cut out a 40" x 48" square and hung it underneath my platform, that really cleaned up the surf !
