Bow ballast


Recommended Posts

On my 12 lsv I have factory hard tanks in the bow and center and 1100 bags in the back. In order to get the best wave I put at least 2 people in the bow but sometimes I only have a driver. So any suggestions on how to get more bow weight. Is lead the best option or is there a bag that can replace the hard tank that holds more weight? Thought about hiding lead beside the tank but not sure if there is room. Thanks guys

Mission Boat Gear makes 50lb sacks of lead ballast. Easy to move around. Amazon sells them for only $34 including shipping. Mission also makes a great wake shape fin that suctions onto the boat. Big improvement in the wake with these and super easy on-off. No, I don't work for Mission, but they have great stuff. Fat Sac also makes a lot of nice water bags that would work.

Will definitely look into the mission lead bags. Seems pretty cheap and I have go surf assist so no need for the wakeshaper. Thanks for the info though!
