    Default Ballast-help!

    I am a new member and i own a 2006 Moomba Mobius LS. The ballast completely full is not doing it for me. I need some help and input on Fat Sacs. Where to put them, how much weight can i have without sinking the boat, brand, size, etc. There is already little walking space with the engine in the middle so that is not a problem. any input greatly appreciated.

    Is that with the 3 part ballast (2 under the seat and 1 in the locker), or just the single rear ballast? Only reason I ask is because I'm actually looking at purchasing the same boat, a 2006 mobius LS with the 3 part system and wake plate. I have been slightly concerned about the wake potential for boarding and surfing, so if you could provide any feedback I'd really appreciate it. The boat looks awesome, just want to ask someone who actually owns one what they think. I have been hind a supra DD and the wake seemed pretty good, but that was comparing it to my IO.

    There is a 400lbs tank under the back seat. I wakeboard and wakesurf ALOT. Wakeboarding- If you get 5 people in it its not bad. Wakesurfing is terrible. I have an idea of what im going to do ballast wise. It is fixable... just stock isnt getting it done. Im going to add some major weight for wakesurfing but i can live with the wakeboard wake (but im going bigger anyway). I would get a Vdrive if you dont slolam ski. cant go back now but the DD is annoying. radio also has no AUX input. fyi

    Have you considered this single fat sac as a solution? http://www.wakemakers.com/fly-high-i...-surf-sac.html

    I have an '08 Mobius LS.
    400 hard tank full, 400lb fat sac in front walk way, 750lb fat sac between engine and back seat (surf side), 400lb on seat (adjust accordingly), 750lb fat sac on side of engine (surf side) 2700 lbs total. Speed between 9.8-11.5 mph (adjust acordingly, style of board, wake preference, length, height, push, water conditions) no wake plate. Very surfable wave, still able to control boat with no problems (wife drives while we surf) but she is a great driver.

    Some links to pictures when we only had 1900lbs of ballast. Wake now has more push, better length with the heavier weight. You don't have a lot of walk around space, but who cares when you are having fun on the lake with the family.
