I was out for the first time sunday in my new boat. It's an 04 mobius ls with front and rear ballast tanks. My question is while I was cruising I noticed the boat seemed heavy and I checked the bag in the ski locker, It was, opening the door on it's on, FULL. The pump was not turned on. The rear tank was also full. The pumps were not turned on, and As soon as I set them to empty they did what they were supposed to. Once I turned the pumps off the tanks started filling back up? Am I missing something here. I found a manual cutoff valve right in front of the water pump for the ballast tanks, Does this need to be closed when cruising?? Any help would be appreciated.
