OK guys I'm new to the forum and just looking for some input here. Towards the end of the summer I got a Cobalt 240. Here's a link to just bring you up to speed on the boat. Cobalt 240 I wanted to get a boat cause I was starting to get into wakeboarding and have always wanted a boat. Lost a Harley over it but hopefully pays off next season. We ended up getting a Cobalt so it was still a family boat and everyone could enjoy it but still pretty decent for wakeboarding. It's the closest boat Cobalt makes for wakeboarding. Anyways I'm putting a Tower and Perfect Pass Wakeboard Pro on it this winter and looking into putting my own ballast system in it. It puts off a decent size wake anyways without much trim. I mean it's a 24ft. boat and weights about 5K full with water and fuel plus about 3 guys. I also had a question about how much ballast. I hear everyone talking about putting anywhere from like 1000lbs. to 2000lbs. of ballast in their boats but most of these boats have a capacity of like 1700lbs. Is that just people weight and can these boats handle a lot more then that or is everyone just ignoring the specs. until they sink their boat? My 240 has a 496 in it that pushes 375 HP so I'm not worried about it weighting it down. I mean it's hard as hell to pull boarders cause it has too much power I think. I know that sounds weird but not being a true tow boat it's hard to keep the power constant and I'm hoping PP fixes that. I'm just looking for some input from anyone that has riden in a Cobalt and if you guys think it's worth the time and money. If I had to do it over again I would just get a CC, MC or something like that but I think this boat can be pretty good for an I/O with these few options. Any suggestions or ideas are welcome. That's why I joined. Thanks a lot.
