This is how we weight down a Bayliner over here in Scandinavia.. Bare in min tho, sacs cost apx
$320a piece and gas prices are at a mere $6,50 per gallon so we kinda need to get our priorities straight.. lol

btw, those drums are 56 gallons a piece, . Plus another 20 gallon tank on the left side to compansate driver weight...

Itīs looks pretty similar on what we do here in Argentina.

We use the same drums!!! The only difference is that we put two of them in the rear.

yeah, we tried that Tinco, but the damned boat is too small so they won't fit beside the engine compartement..
Still makes a nice smooth wake tho.

Hey where there is a will there is a way.

Where in Scandinavia are you located?
I took some classes in Honefoss, Norway during June for a study abroad program. I saw a lot boats and a lot of incredibly glassy water, but not much evidence of a wakeboard scene. I did get the opportunity to do some summer snowboarding at Stryn which was an amazing experience.

How is it that Sacks are $320 a piece? Is that $320 US dollars? Excuse my american ignorance, can't you just order them online from a US company?

Luciano : it's a 1750. Not the biggest wake, but nice transition and pretty clean.

John : I've been riding at Stryn myself apx 10 summers, and it's a blast every time. It is beautiful, yeah, thanx

Craig : Yup, USD. I could order them online from the u.s but then there are taxes. We have insane taxation on private imports over here, probably would cost more than if i just bought the $320 ones... Guess i gotta go back to the states some day and make some good friends..
