06 21.5' sunscape - no stock ballast + flyhigh = tank buster?

Recommended Posts


Looking at a Sunscape that was ordered with no factory ballast. The owner had the dealer add 750s to the rear using tsunamis, but nothing to the front/centre.

If I add a centre bag in the ski locker and maybe a front under the seats would this be a good setup?

Seems like this would be the same as a tankbuster setup?

Any drawbacks to not not having the factory setup ballast setup?

What are the stock weights on this gen 21.5' hull?

Before there were hard tanks there were ballast bags in ski lockers. Measure the locker to see what you can get in. Probalby about 500# then up front you can use small fat bricks in the storage areas or smaller bag in the walk way.

Should work well

We run ('05 21LSV, diamond hull, no wedge)

750s in rear locker

Side sac under port seats

Rear seat sac in ski locker

And the 711 bag under the front seats

We fill the appropriate bags for the activity we're doing. The only time we're looking for more weight is when we're surfing. The overall set up is good and we have no worries about throwing gear on the bags when they're empty.
