Switching sides (dump/fill the stock 250 tanks and the 750 sacs simultaneously) typically takes "one beer" (< 5 mins). The kids usually need a swim to cool off anyway - so the "down time" is not noticed.



How many sessions are you running (per day) that your dump/fill times are an hour?

We ride all day as I take 5-6 weeks vacation and just hang out on the lake, so in a 6 hour day I might take 5-6 sets. Fill times with aftermarket sacs are 7 minutes I think and empty is 9.

Better explain how it cost a grand to plumb in sacs into the stock lines?????? I think it cost me 70 bucks for all the lines and fittings, then probably 400 for sacs?!?! (this is three sacs)

No, dude. A grand for the sacs, the pump, the switch and wiring and the additional plumbing and fittings. Labour included.

Oh, and that $1,000 also included a 400lb fly high sac and a tsunami pump as well. So, three fly high sacs, tsunami pump, crossover valve, plumbing lines, fittings, jabsco pump, switch (run next to the throttle), electrical wiring and labour. Not bad.

Did you drill additional holes under the boat to feed the new pumps?

That's some good sesh'n. No wonder you're looking for quicker turn-around times.

They used the existing intake/drain hole for the center tank. I can't use my aftermarket system at the same time as the center tank, but I always keep that full ... so it doesn't impact turn around time to switch riders. I can drain the rear hard tank and the locker sac on one side and fill both on the other side simultaneously.

I should add that dumping all ballast (2500-2900lbs) at the end of the day does take about 10 minutes. Time for two beers!

300 worth of sacs, 125 for plumbing. The boat already has pumps, if you piggy backed off factory tanks.

Mastercraft Ad: "To make a wave you have to make a hole in the water." True that. Tabs, gates, etc, are awesome for quickly switching sides, but you still need to make a hole in the water. Pretty sure that with all the attention on surfing that the manufacturers will ultimately figure out how to do both: great pro-level wake, fast switch from goofy/regular.
