X-star 750# fat sac in walkway-pic

For all of you X-star owners that want to see how well a 750# fat sac fits in the walkway, here's a pic for you.

I also just installed (2) x-star 720# sacs in the rear lockers but no pics of those. I will say that extra weight made a huge difference in wake size and shape. The wake now has more lip than before and is overall much bigger. Those 720's just about fill the entire locker right to the top, only room for 1-2 vests on top of the sacs.

My question is---can you walk on those when they are holding water???

I've always wondered how you get around the boat with bags of water on the floor...

@ snork, yes I have not used my rear hard tanks in over 5 years. The wake is great, I need to take pics next time for you guys.
@ski/hunt, yes you can walk on the sac when it's full. None of us weight more than 180.

I do the same in the walkway of my 205v. Had no problems walking on it all season last season. And people can still sit in the bow.
