It does!! Liquid Force has a marketing agreement with Supra, hence their custom boats. The look nice-

Actually, I am the regional sales rep for Liquid Force and have been doing promotional Mastercrafts for years. The guys at Midwest MC are always awesome about helping me dress up the boats each year and the 2009 is no exception!!

The good news is that MC added size to the internal ballast for 2009.

On top of that, in my 2007 and 2008, they added additional soft bag ballast into each of the storage compartments. The soft bags get plummed into the stock ballast plummbing, eliminating the need to use portable pumps. It takes about 4 minutes to completely fill/drain the stock and additional ballast.

It works great!!! I am estimating that each of the bags gives an additional 750lbs of extra ballast. Really nice for surf and wakeboard setups.

Having soft bags allows you to still use the strorage areas in the rear when the ballast is not needed.

Check out www.waterskis.com or call Midwest MC for more info 763-533-9666

roonie did a great write up on adding additional fly high bags. my main concern is the ballast pump timers.

The dealer can re-set the timers for you or provide instructions.
It was pretty easy to do-
