Any ideas on an autoballast system for a mid 90's sport nauti??

I just picked up a 70 inch bag for the locker in my boat it really helps to maintain speed and it holds about 350 pounds. As far as the back you'd have to do some modification to the back seat to get one large compartment. I've seen pics of it being done and I'm considering it myself but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Oh and I'd really like to hear some ideas about pump arrangements for this boat there isn't alot of room to run hoses or place pumps.

How does weight just in the back effect the wake on this boat also?

Weight in the back will make the wake very steep and the clean zone of the wake will be smaller. Nautique wakes are already pretty steep and I like that aspect, but too much weight in the back would make it too steep for my tastes. A properly weighted boat, in most people's eyes will have the weight distributed evenly throughout the boat, so the wake will be bigger, but similarly shaped to the stock wake. Weight in the front of the boat will mellow the wake out and makes the clean zone or sweet spot longer. My buddy is running a 500 lb sack in the front and two 450's on either side of the engine and the wake is nice, but he is still trying to figure out the perfect configuration on his 95 Sport.
