Stock ballast tanks

I just bought a 2001 Maristar 230 VRS. Does anyone know how much weight each of the stock ballast tanks holds? Hard tanks in each rear locker and a soft bag in the ski locker at the front.

I think it's around 800 lbs. 225 for each rear hard tank and 350 for locker bag.

Welcome and post some pics of the new boat.

Would I be better off taking out the hard tanks and replacing with 750s or 1100s or leaving the hard tanks in and putting in smaller fat sacs?

I'll have to take some pictures this weekend. I just realized we've taken hundreds of pictures in the boat but no pictures of the boat.

You'll want to remove the hard tanks and replace with bags. Should be able to use the existing plumbing and you'll have a lot more storage space when the bags are empty.

Thanks for the quick reply, Jayhawk. I'll start taking the tanks out this weekend. Any recommendations on fat sacs?

Others with your boat will chime in on bag size. I believe the 750s would be the max I'd go with mine, but my lockers may be smaller than yours. If you still have the stock aerator pumps, Wakemakers offers an upgrade kit:http://www.wakemakers.com/mastercraf...t-upgrade.html

I run 750s in my 230 VRS. They get nice and plump in there and should be at the 950 lb "expanded weight" that fly high advertises. So, you'll only gain about another 100 lbs in the compartment vs. the 750s. The 1,100s will not be "plump" and will probably weigh less than 1,100 lbs when full.
