Hey Guys,
Just wondering how to weight a PS 209? Any capacity for underfloor sacks or anything like that?
Thanks
Mitch

Some work on the search feature will give you some good information. No way to get weight under the floor. The most common for the X9/209 is a ski locker sack, under rear seat sack and rear locker sack.
My setup is
custom rectangular sack in the front ski locker, 519 lbs
under the back seat, 375 lbs (small sack does not lift up the seat)
in the rear locker, 600 lbs (probably less, it doesn't fill up)
two fat buddies on the floor, locations depend on sport and people load, 280 lbs each
Total 2,000 lbs

I have a 400lb in the ski locker that was factory, I had a custom made under the rear that is 1100lb ( seat is in the top position), and two 500lb sacks on the floor for surfing or if the boat is empty. I am a little scared to try the rear locker due to the thin layer that sits on the gas tank etc. Have you had any problems doing so?

No problems in 7 years. Lift the bottom cover and make sure the fuel lines are down in the channel of the gas tank so they don't get pinched. The load is distributed over a pretty large area.

What are you trying to weigh for, wakesurfing or wakeboarding?

just for wakeboarding, and need to keep all seating free since we are involved in a ski club type scenario. How does a 209/x9 react to weight in the nose? I'm thinking one sack in the rear locker and maybe one across the front seats in the bow or 2 either side of the engine
