Ballast & Max Capacity

Ok...question that is probably common sense, but going to ask it anyway. Did some searching on the forum but couldn't find what I'm looking for.

The published capacity of our boat is 3,000 pounds. I'm assuming that fuel and the stock ballasts don't count against that (i.e full fuel and stock ballast tanks and you still have 3,000 lbs of capacity available). Subtract off gear, coolers, etc.

Now add some additional fat sacs. Say two 750 lb sacs to create a monster surf wake. I'm assuming those DO count against your capacity. Correct? So in this situation, you now have 1,500 left for people and gear?

Reason for my question - getting ready to purchase some sacs and reading a lot of posts of 1,100 to 2,000 pounds of sacs and I'm thinking "wow, just how much can you load these things up with?".
