How much weight and where?

I wanted some input on how much weight to add to my 93 205 to get a better wake. Will have to buy fat sacs but not sure how many. I looked at the 1200lbs sofa so I can still have the back seat, but do I need any weight anywhere else? It is usually only 2 adults and 1 kid in the boat. Is there a set way to decide or just trial and error on what works best for you?

Take out the kids and one adult-Add about 115lbs of something that would go good in the swimsuit pics thread!

In my '94 I have about 800 lbs of lead, steel & locker sack. The wake isn't huge, but it's medium size, well defined & has gives great pop..... and the boat still performs great. Not a lot of bow rise, and we do Around the Boats & hot pickups regularly with it.

300 lbs between the back seat & the gas tank
100 lbs of lead under the gunnel on each side
100 lbs in the bow
200 lbs locker sack

Remove back seat, apply two 700 lb fat sac's, works great for us.
