I've had a 21V RE and currently a 23V LE and neither of those boats like bow weight. It knocked the height down considerably and didn't lengthen the pocket measurably.
I run a custom fat sac that fills the rear compartment on the port side and extends up under the bench seat to the cooler under the observers seat. I think it's about 1,300 pounds - although theoretically it holds more than that.
No weight on the darkside, honestly I wouldn't run bow weight at all. Completely fill the the rear compartment with sacs and then if you can fill up underneath the bench seat on the port side you'll have what I run.
We set taps on 4 and adjust "higher" as we burn fuel. Speed at 10.5 to 11. I used to get a similar sized wake on our 21V RE, as below which is our current 23V LE.
