2005 vlx bow ballast


Recommended Posts


Pop bags full of old tire lead. I picked up 8 bags, ended up around 40 lbs each. I can put them pretty much anywhere I need them. I might have $70 tied up in them all.



Now days the trick is finding a shop that will give them up. Recyclers pay for it. And most big name brand shops are required to log it. I found a local shop & the owner happened to be a Moomba owner. After he gave me like 2 buckets full of it, he bought bags for himself & a few of his buddies & made ballast for all their boats.

Other guys have used shot from a gun range. As I recall they are made of steel though, which will rust. So you have to seal your bags up good.

I'm lost. Did you read the OP's question? Were you trying to answer it?
