I currently have 2001 X-star with stock ballast but want to add additional ballast next to hard tanks in rear that fill via switches already present. So...what's the easiest/best/cheapest way to do that? I already have skylon fat buddies (~280# each) that I fill by hand with pump over the side of the boat.

Take out hard tanks and just put in big fat sacs?

'y-in' fat sac next to hard tanks?(preferred option)

For those that respond, I'm looking for specifics. I'm handy enough to do the work but not smart enough figure out how to set up hoses/pumps/etc.

Thanks.

Nobody wants to help the stupid, know-nothing-about-ballast wakeboarder?

Well if you have an '01 it's probably mayfair areators vs reversible pumps. I pulled my hard tanks and put the pro-x 750's back there on my '01 205V. A lot more room to work on the engine and the ability to fill as much as needed. Re-used the existing areator pumps and supplemented/lengthened the lines with flow-rite materials to keep it looking oem. Wish they would have done a through-hull scoop back then rather than the intakes in the back. (no fill on the fly) but it works pretty good. Certainly better than hand filling.
