Ok. Got my new sv233. Wish I would not have got the ramfill, but its to late for that. Love the boat. Seems I need about 500#s more weight for a good surf (would have had that if I didnt get ramfill) the dealer and the rep pushed it so hard I guess I fell in. What is the biggest bag I can fit in my rear lockers over the ramfill. My dealer says a 450 will fit, but my boat is the first ram he has sold and he really doesnt seem to know alot about these boats. I think I can go bigger. Does anyone know. We are dying to get it dialed in.
So I have been looking around and it seems like if surfing is the primary goal, it is best to replace whatever factory ballast there is with large sacs. In my case I think I'll throw in an enzo sac in the port side and keep the factory ballast on the starboard or throw in a small 400lbs sac. The boat I'm looking at has just the two factory midship tanks (no 400lbs bow tank). I'm pretty sure that setup will deliver a good wake, but I've been looking around for some time and many people stress the addition of bow ballast to lengthen the pocket. The main questions I have are: 1) Is bow ballast useful in creating a nice surf wake behind an enzo sv230? 2) If so, how easy (and expensive) would it be to plumb a sac where the factory one would have been? 3) I'm not very useful at mechanics; could I get a dealer to plumb them in and install larger pumps at a reasonable price?
