^Agreed. Also seems like an angled piece of plastic cutting board mounted beneath the fiberglass frame near the seat backs would be an easy mod to keep that end of the topside bags protected and pressed aft a bit.

FWIW, the 50L 750's pressed too far fore into the battery switch area of my X10 which also caused some drainage shortfalls as that end of the bag stayed low upon discharge.

Shortening the bag 5 inches will still not be short enough to get the full height out of the bag up front but I bet it would help out a lot. 25 high might be too tall as well. Its hard to tell because of the fact that the 750's are too long.

Thats is a good idea as well

'15 X30 - Rear Locker Dimensions?



^Heads up, note that red plastic capped bolt end holding the seat backs should be cut down with a dremel tool to prevent a bag getting popped. Easy and quick, goggles and towel liners suggested as that hot metal piece flies all over.

This pic also makes it look like there is more height available above a 20H bag. Our X10 820 bags full only leave enough room to store a tow rope but do not push up the locker doors.

Thanks again for the pics and input all.

I put 1100's in mine. Had to relocate the ballast pumps and modify the rear of the locker so that it steps up to the transom but it added significantly to the length and the 1100's fit fine. Can't recall the exact dimensions. I intended to use the original 450's as extra ballast but to be honest, the wave is spot on with the bags filled and two people on board and I don't bother.

^Attaboy Tass. Ballast is like boobs and televisions, you can never go too big.

When you describe the mod to rear of locker, is that towards the seat backs and lifting the floor there to be equal or above the locker floor to help drainage?

I took the back panel out Moose and fabricated a new one. Made two brackets up to mount the ballast pumps in the gap between the transom and hard tank. There is a couple of hundred mm of room to be gained although it has to slope to suit the transom shape.

The first two photos are before and the second two are afterwards. Maniacmike did something similar but mounted both pumps on one bracket on the transom within the engine bay. May have been a better solution than mine.

Regardless, the 1100's fill the space beautifully and don't intrude into the battery switch area or corner lockers. You need to make sure all bolts and screws are capped because they REALLY fill the space but I've had no issues. The swim platform ends up ankle deep when stationary with two people on board so its all the weight you need. I have smaller bags under the front seats to help keep the nose down.
