    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?

    My first thoughts when seeing the bag was that the height would possibly obstruct the view of the rider from the driver. I guess it's difficult to tell from the perspective the pictures were taken. Not to mention the fact the wake is going to bean extra 3ft. Taller... No doubt it's the best solution I've seen for ballast on the swim deck.

    For wakesurfing, with the ballasts full and the bow straight up in the air because you're doing 10mph or less, I don't think visibility will be an issue.

    No worries, that side will be listed and the view should be unobstructed!

    @jcyamaharider keep us posted on placing the orders.
    I'm assuming the air-intake is a non-issue, but let me know - it will be a closer/tighter fit when weighted with water rather than air.
