question about fat sacks

Recommended Posts

MARiley

i usually go to the lake with just 2-3 other people in the boat and now the 3-200 lb sacs aren't enough weight for the boat so here's my question:

i would like to buy a new sac(most preferably a fly high pro-x) to accommodate the lack of people. i've been toying with the weight and balance of the boat/ballast and can't quite come up w/ which sack to buy and where to put all of them in the boat. space isn't really an issue considering there are only a few in the boat. so the rear seat can be removed if need be. i was thinking something like this:

A - doesn't have to be filled all the way up.

B

a little sac will fit just in front of the cowling behind the driver and observer if that helps.

any help is greatly appreciated as i am leaving for shasta in a week and a half.

What's your question?

General info to keep in mind, weight the boat evenly, you probably want a little more in the bow or center of the boat to make up for the wedge already in the rear. Weight in the rear makes the wake steep, tall, and soft. Weight in the front makes is rampy hard and short. Weighting it evenly makes it the best of both.

i guess i was just looking for advice on which sac to buy and where i would put it before dropping 150-200 bills on a sac that may be the wrong size.

I would look at their big fat sac W707 750 lbs rear and the bow sac W 706 1000 lbs. That way you can fill as much as you need and can do away with the sacs in the floor. I just ordered their (fly high) side sac for riding and the fat sac for surfing. I also ordered a lot of the fittings so I can make it all automatic with simer pumps.
