2005 Response LX - Add Manual Wedge?

Recommended Posts

Virginiaray

Can anyone tell me if a manual wedge can be added to a 2005 Response LX that was not equipped with one from the factory?

Thanks in advance!

Yup, you can.  A PITA but doable.

The manual wedge is simply a substitute for ballast so it would be easier and cheaper to simply add more ballast.

Except that a Response is small, so adding the ballast equivalent outside of the boat saves a ton of space as compared to 1,000lbs of ballast bags inside the boat.

I also believe that the RLX has limited freeboard and would expect ballast to reduce that even further.  At least the wedge would only impact the freeboard when underway, not at all other times.  Expect the wedge to be easier to maintain rather than sacks, pumps, etc.
