    That would put us around 720 I believe. That would be nice.

    So with the 18" dimension I get roughly 610 pounds. it add a little for swell so about 650.

    22" dimension 741 pounds so with swell probably 790 ish pounds.

    Good deal. Let's call it 750. That's seems to be a good number for the swim deck, according to a few of you, so I feel like it's a go. Are you interested in getting both sizes done with wakemakers? I think the bags can be the same config, besides dimensions.

    I have 1 prototype bag ordered just to see how it will fit the newer 240 series boats. once I get it I will show pictures and then move forward with the 212 series boats.

    If all of my 240 crowd approves of the bag size then I will go ahead and order the rest of the shipment. I had it put on hold until I seen what it looked like on the boat. I will want to do one test fitting of the bag on a 210 series boat before I make a order on those. @Scottie are you in to be the test dumm.......errr ....... test subject?
