2021 23 LSV - Where do you put lead in the bow?


Recommended Posts

There are not compartments in the bow to stuff lead weight, the only compartment is used to store batteries. Where do you call put nose weight in this boat without putting it on the seats? Is there any way to access the area behind the front most corner backrest where there seems to be some hallow space?

You can remove the 4 screws in the black plastic box to gain access in front of the helm. Even with the sub and a heater you will have plenty of room to put in lead. Just don’t lay anything on the ballast hoses or you may end up with a front ballast tank auto drain issue.

I always put my extra bow weight in the forward end of the observer’s compartment. 100-150 lbs as far forward as it will go there has really worked well and let’s me run the 580 PNP’s full. I also have another 100-150 lbs under where the observer sits.
