    That actually sounds like a good idea. Do you still have the center bag? And could I get a little more info as to how you did that and what hardware you needed? Thank you all, I appreciate the advice!

    I will try to explain the best I can without pics. My boat is 7 hrs away.
    The hardest part of this mod was getting the damn cemented plugs out of the factory bags. Wakemakers has a video on how to do it. I will try to follow the waters path as I go through.

    Starting with the center bag. Fill Drain lines remains the same. I moved the vent line from the current location on top to the hole towards the bow. (I did this to keep the connections hidden and so when the bag fills it does not push on them). I put a short hose going to a Tee. Off the tee one hose goes to the observer side up with the battery cables. (I had to remove the plastic thing on the floor around the hole to get the hose to fit) The other side of the tee I extended the factory vent hose using a hose barb union to make that hose long enough to reach the front. (2 reason for not messing with this hose 1. It looked like a challange to run a hose towards the driver side and 2. If it did not work i have the original vent line ready.) Both hose are then connected to the bags that I placed under the bow seats (using the holes towards the rear of the boat)

    Bow sacs: Off the connections closest to the bow ran a vent hose from each to a Tee and then place a check valve on the line going to the side of the boat.

    Purchase list:
    3 Flow Rite W741 (straight)
    2 W746
    2 Plugs W731
    2 1" Hose Barb Tee
    1 1" Hose Barb Union
    1 Check Valve
    25 Ft 1" hose
    16 Hose Clamps

    I would suggest getting 2 check valves for the rear bags and a couple extra flow rite connectors when you are making this purchase.

    PM my your email I have a picture of a drawn diagram if that would help.

    you don't need an IBS. You need a surfboard that fits you.

    Wish the edit function was available for a longer time.... anyhow.....

    I have been surfing behind a Moomba since 2005. I have been thru every imaginable ballast set-up with a DD and the NG Outback V boat. I can tell you thru experience that bigger and more expensive ballast is not always the answer.

    You can have a 6 foot tall wave, 20 feet behind the boat and still suck as a surfer.

    Please, everyone with a NG OBV....don't rush out and buy things you do not need.

    Learn to use the basics (750 in rear corners, stock 400 in front, and a passenger or two) and then as you improve your skills, you may want more and you may be totally satisfied with what works.

    The NG OBV is a hell of a surf boat. I'm betting as good as anything in the present Moomba stable - at least what I have seen in pictures so far.

    I'd welcome the challenge of going toe to toe with any other Moomba out there with equal ballast.

    Ahhh, we coined that a few years ago.

    NG OBV means "New Generation Outback V".

    As opposed to the 2008 and earlier Outback V's, which were OG OBV's (Old Generation)
