Recommended Posts

Just picked up my custom sac I had made today from Bakes. This thing is huge. Runs all the way from the rear locker up to the passenger storage compartment. Paul filled it with air for me to take a picture. Estimated 2K+ in weight.

Rhino my sac is officially bigger than yours Tongue.gif . I took your demensions and added about 3' in length to it.

I plan to run two fill pumps and two drain pumps on it. Finally no more manually filling sacs anymore.

Ouch!Shocking.gif

Gotta pay to play. It was a little tough to swallow for me to but here's how I justified it. I was sick and tired of manually filling bags, making people move around all the time while filling bags, spilling water in the boat, forgetting sacs sometimes, sitting sacs on the seats, etc.. Finally I just had enough and bit the bullet. If you think about it it's really not much more than an Enzo sac and this one is a one off, they aren't production sacs so it's costs more for them to make it. I also had 7 fittings put on the bag which adds up.

Wow, didnt realize it would take that much. I think I've only filled my tanks a couple times this summer, and that's when those pesky wakeboarders ;) showed up to ride.

I average 4-6 gph and anyone that rides with me will vouch for that, even Paul at Bakes will vouch for it. I couldn't believe it when I first got the boat.

This engine/boat/prop combo is a match made in heaven, it's only running 2600 RPM (correct me if I'm wrong Jeremy)... Boat runs awesome, can't wait to fill the bag at the flip of a switch.

Riding dirty is right!

Enjoy!! Good project for the winter getting that all plumbed in.
