NXT22 Custom Ballast

I am thinking of ordering my NXT with no ballast but the front. Has anybody done this?
I would like to delete the hard tanks and just put 1100# bags in the back.
I think I can get them to order with the pumps and everything but no tanks or bags in the rear.

Can it be done. I'm sure it could...but they would have a fairly high charge. Deviations from the standard manufacturing process will cost you. I think I remember in build a boat that deleting decals was over $500 . My advice is a sawzall and sell the bags.

I guess I need a factory tour so I can see the cavity that the hard tanks sit in. I am guessing it flows with what the coffin looks like.

Wake Maker 710lbs bags fit in the back perfect. I get a pretty good surf wave with just 2 kids and a driver

Got a 2018 in the near future?
I would order it with them and either deal with them being there or remove them yourself. It's been my experience that anytime you want a manufacture to do something custom it turns to big $$$.

I am thinking of going to a 2018 mostly because of the tower. I am trying to think of everything that I can that I would like different. I mostly wakeboard.
If you add about 1800 above stock in this boat the wakeboard wake is great.

Have you re-propped to get that 1800# on plane or just use the center tabs to get on plane?
