Heck no that would be a great setup for that boat. I mean perfect. You may however find that you get a bit more very on the wake if you only fill that bow sac to 450-500. The 210 doesnt ride quite as bow high as the 205v hull at boarding speeds and tends to have a much more ramps transitions. You will find you may need to ride around 23.5-24.5 mph for that much weight.

Not sure how wide your rear lockers are but the only difference between the 750's and 1100's is that the 1100's are four inches wider. If you have the width just get the 1100's for a few more dollars up front. You can always fill them as little or as much as you want. The ibs is great and is actually 725lbs.

I gotta say that was a great idea. That looks clean. Never crossed my mind

Nice pump layout! What size and location of sacs did you use and what are the results. (wake and fill/empty times...)
