I would try using my MLS first. Invite several friends onto the boat next. If all that fails, work on your technique, 'cause the VLX+MLS pumps out a world class wake.

Good Luck.

We used to wiegh the bow down with about 300# of sand under the seats. We got some kind of vinyl bags made specifically for that (don't remember the name). They worked great and did not start ripping until about the 3rd or 4th season they were in use...

I use em' under the front. Wrapped them in plasic bags and then duct tape.

Let's Go Ride used to sell those vinyl bags, but I'm not sure if they still do.

Go to your local sporting goods store and get some large dry bags. The whole bag of sand should fit it 'em, plus when you roll down the top and snap it shut, you have a handle to carry them around. They are tough too - have had the same 3 bags of sand for 5+ years.

All good ideas. Thanks. I was thinking of wrapping the bags in an industrial shrink wrap material we use on pallots to keep the bags from ripping. I like the idea of a handle though. That would definatley make them easier to transport.

I have been using the same sand bags for 3 years now. It is a great inexpensive weight solution. They are small enough to hide in your storage compartments too which is nice.

I did what david D said... works great and cheap and pretty good on not taking up much space
