I guess not? lol. Have been handling too many historical documents w/ tax returns and examining past revenues to project goals and etc. Guess the mind is not as good as the body?

Spending some time learning the new boat and what is right and what is wrong. But there is nothing wrong with this 6 Liter beast.

Hi,

Thought Id share a cheap way of doing lead bags.

I have had barbell weights and concrete bases for parasols in the boat to figure out best weight distribution and now that I found it, I wanted to convert it into a cleaner setup.

Being Dubai buying and shipping wake bags from the US is a no-no. Also, lead locally is more than 500$ per 100lbs. After some searching, I found steel shot for abrasive applications to be a workable option. Packed it in 22lbs vacuum bags (those for doing sous-vide - def recommend having your steaks that way) and squeezed them into shooting bags I got over Amazon.

Steel shot................2.18$/kg
Bags.........................23.5$/4 pcs

10kg/22lbs bag done for 27.7$

I bought 150kg.... at a ton, the price for the steel shot would be half.

Im planning to fit most of these left and right of the engine divider in the rear compartments as well as under the rear seats.

Bad news it did.... but other good news a bell housing from a 6.2l raptor motor fits perfectly!
