Weighting a 79 for Wakeboarding

I have a 79 MC 19 Skier, that of course was made for skiing, but I'm a wakeboarder. I'm to my limits with the wake it throws and am wanting to add some weight (fat sac / launch pad) to increase the wake size. Any suggestions on the best way to weight this particular boat for wakeboarding?

I have a '91 prostar, and bought a fat seat from somebody on here. I'm not really into wake boarding, but have friends that are. Seems to work pretty good. My back seat got stolen, if you can believe that crap, and the seat replaces it quite well. For boarding, fill with water, for skiing, fill with air. Plus it's way more comfortable than the OEM backseat. Probably need some more weight in the front, but works good for now.
Lots of power is good, more is better, too much is just right.

dont forget side sacs, you need to distribute the weight
