Adding Factory Bow Ballast

Recommended Posts

Woodsprinter

I understand we can add the factory bow ballast in 05-08 VLX/LSV. If boat has fiberglass bow seating construction, it is no go, right? It has to be carpeted support? How much is the estimate to add factory bow ballast? It is hard to find the good deal on VLX/LSV with quad ballast tanks..

You can read my write up on the install. You are correct in the seat suports making it doable or not. cost deppends on if your doing it yourself or paying for the hole thing to be done. I did it myself and got it done for less than $500. but I was patiant and had a dealer that was willing to help me for example I didnt pay shipping on the tank. I had them send it with there boat delivery. Saved well over $100 to do it that way but I had to wait. not a big deal honestly. As far as finding them on the used market already installed shouldnt be a big deal. Best of luck!
