Hey everyone. My buddy owns an '03 Moomba Outback with 310 hp. there is a 600 lb. sac in the rear but he is looking to add more weight all around (front and rear) the question I have is how much weight should he add to the back before adding to the bow? He is thinking about getting a 750 lb bow sac and some side sacs. Does anyone have any suggestions.

For every 100 lbs in the back you want to put 40 in the front
60/40 ratio is usually best.
more in the back for a lippy/vert wake, more in the front for a rampy wake.

Every boat will be different, as well as your personal preference on wake shape.

keep in mind you don't have to fill the sacks all the way.

kevin - thats 1:2.5 what you mean is 1:1.5

but, like Rod said, every boat is different. move it around until your happy. Industrial sand bags weigh @ 60lbs depending how full you want them. If you have access to some sand, it make it really easy to move around. Filling then draining a 600lb takes a while, plus you can move sand on the fly

Any suggestions other than sand bags. I have used them in the past for other things and the bags can rip and cause a mess. We have tried filling totes with water and sealing them, but that was a hassle
