Bow Ballast Tank Issues


Recommended Posts

On my MXZ when the bow ballast tank is filled, it bows up and raises the fiberglass / carpeted cover panel up about 2-3 inches. It looks retarded. At first I thought this was the result of too much air getting in the tank and a water temp/air temp differential but its happened every time. My dealer talked about replacing it and billing Malibu.

Has anyone else had this happen?

That sounds absolutely ridiculous. I don't get it though, the tanks are pretty rigid. As long as it's vented why the heck would that happen. Doesn't happen on my 06 LSV if that helps..

Mine does the same thing. It goes down after a bit, I believe it is air trapped in there. Dealer said it was normal. Mine only goes up an inch or so but is definitely noticeable.
