When you have to start mounting ballast tanks on the outside of your boat it might be time to look into an bigger boat....IMHO

That is the one. I use no ballast at the present time. Just looking to add some weight without taking up space

Kind of what I was thinking.. I don't know that I would want ballast on the platform on my 90 ps190.. With me and my brother on mine just sitting in the water it feels like its flexing. Much less 300+ lbs bouncing while moving

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
