What does everyone use to put on the passage side of the boat to balance the boat out when there is no one other than the driver in the boat? and how much weight do you use? 197 here.....

I just found this Straight Line water bag it says 85 LBS
85 Block, 8107
This cube is perfectly sized for balancing the boat wake on the fly. It’s smaller size and reinforced handles make it easily moveable by one person. A safer and smarter solution than lead weights. Not LPL compatible. Where to put it: Anywhere you need it. 14" X 14" X 16".

I use the MTS ballast system under the passenger seat ... it is factory installed, not sure how it would be to plumb it in after the fact:(

I have a herd of 50lb sandbags wrapped in duct tape, a garbage bag and wrapped in duct tape again. They are fairly small and easy to move around, but like lead they will sink straight to the bottom.
