Does anybody know where I can find the ballast quantities for all the X-series boats as well as how much is in the new X-14 and CSX 220?

Thanks for your help!:)

I can tell you that Mastercrafts numbers tend to be off a little. They use to claim 1K in weight in the X1/X2/Xstar hull. I know the factory tanks and center bag ends up about 700-800 lbs depending on how full you want to top it off at.

X2 650
X15 650
X30 1000
X1 500
XStar 800
CSX 800

I took measurements on the rear tanks and calculated the volume in gallons then multipled that by the weigh of a gallon of water 8.33 lbs.

I thought I would test out the center bag. So I weighed it once it was full. Then I overfilled it. I estimated up to 100 lbs difference due to how full you fill the bag and because I didn't calculate the hoses and their volume into the count. I have to use my brain for something might as well be acurrately measuring ballast weight.

You are welcome, no problem. Some people might call me OCD for calculating the factory ballast in my boat. I think MC just calculates a rough estimate of the ballast and then rounds up. You would think with a bunch of engineers they would accurately state it.

in the top right hand corner choose which mastercraft!!

**To get to the stats page you go to features (on the left) then click ballast (on the right) form that page it told me it has an optional 650 rear bag (CSX). They also have a video review and other neat stuff on most of x series boats but not all**

Great site www.wakeboardingmag.com they have lots of other cool stuff to
