Boat needs the weight. 800#s in rear lockers, 400-450's in the sides (coffin, cooler area) and 400 lead up front. Now this is weight for listing side to side but doesn't hurt to have it. I guarantee the gen 2 promo video was not shot with a total of 1920lbs of ballast.

I'm adding 2 thru hulls so as to not overwork the factory system and if will speed up my fill and dumps.
The new pumps will fill the rear locker and side storage.

You can put a 1000# sac in the rear locker. I did this on a 2012. I think you can put the 650#
Size: 60"L x 26"W x 10"H. In the coffin/cooler area. The only thing is I am not 100% sure of the dimensions of these areas. I will need to wait and see. If anyone has an X30 and wants to measure this area (starboard side cooler locker) that would be great?

It's 48L x 18W x 12T. (Cooler area)

The rear locker will take a 1000lb bag but will only hold like 790lbs.
Dimensions are 50 x 22 x 20. I am throwing some straight line 900's in there.

How far back did you measure? I thought it was longer than 48". Can you use the Straight Line bags with the Fat Sac fittings?

You have two existing ballast through hulls. One of which is a two port, and the other should only have one port on it. This design through hull can handle up to 3 1" ports without flow restriction. You only really need one more port added for your auxiliary bags. These through hulls use a "stacked port" configuration. Just add the second stacked port on the through hull that only has one port on it. You won't have any flow restrictions like that. This new setup that MC uses, is a lot better than their old "single through hull+manifold" setup.

Does the cooler locker pass all the way through to the rear locker?

Yes but it gets very narrow. I have looked at building a custom bag but in the spirit of making the bags even on both sides you would need to build shelves due to height variances in the lockers.

Adding all of those ballast bags to the existing pumps would put a lot of pressure on the pumps once you started filling the overflows. Not to mention that unless you wanted to fill all four every time you would need to install ball valves to close off individual lines going to the extra bags.

I just think its a cleaner install and faster fill and drain to put in two more thru hull's with pumps.

The one with only one port being used is to the KGB tank I believe? Are you saying to put a Y on the extra port off of that and run to your side coffin and cooler lockers? Not a bad idea but you would have to doing multiple Y's into the rear overflow as well with check valves which could be problematic for draining as well if I am thinking of this right?

If I am not picking up what you are putting down tell me how you would route everything given my proposed configuration. 2 900's in the rear lockers, 2 450's in the side coffins.

I was actually going to have custom bags with legs built and build shelves out of polyethylene (white plastic cutting board material) to make an even surface for the leg. I decided against it when I saw how narrow the lockers get in the pass through and the battery isolator and reset switches are in the port side which would get pushed on pretty heavily.
