    Default Put some lead in your wake!

    I just got my first 250lbs of lead from Lead Wake. How many others use lead in their boats?

    I don't think my mailman is happy with me tonight. If it fits it ships....

    Just a small company. No web page that I know of. He has a Facebook page but best to contact him by email. His name is Jared.

    $50 for 50lbs, shipped USPS flatrate box. Shipping was about $12.50 per box.

    Now that is funny! You are probably going to start missing your Netflix and porno mags for ticking off your mailman, and God help you if you have anything mark "Fragile"!!

    Mine would have just left a message in our box.

    I intercepted the mailman and offloaded the boxes.

    Now that is just evil. Good thing it is lead since I bet it took a few unscheduled trips down the stairs.

    Now were are you going to put it and will you have to remove out any bags to make it fix or is this now added to everyone's live vest so you can move the weight around?

    I used it last summer, pop products has 800lbs for $700. Made switching sides fast! I thought it was pricey but fast.

    Remember lead does add to your total dry weight and it will aid in the sinking of a boat unlike ballasts.

    I was running some steel weight in my boat. and I think that caused one of my tire bearing to go out. I had a total of 300 in the back and 400 in the front. I would take it out and put it in the truck before any long trips.

    I does not look like you are putting a lot in but with my supra 21v I was sitting right at 6000lb with all my gear and the steel weight. I switch to large sacs and only run a two 50 lb bags of weight to help balance the boat. That way I am not constantly tell people to move around. For some reason it does not hurt there feelings when I tell them to move a bag to the other side of the boat instead of them.
    I think my wife is trying to make me a better person because I did not care and she was always slapping my arm. My friends were us to it but hers friends did not seam to like me moving them around based on weight.
