Ok, I have an update on this. I took a road trip last weekend to look at an X80, and unfortunately, I don't think this will work for what I have in mind. Not enough room for a decent amount of ballast (not even enough for 3k), and even if there was, there is areas on the back of the boat that would allow easy water intrusion with that much ballast. Too risky. I have to abandon this idea

I sealed off my ski pylon hole. Also on the list is to replace the foam seal on the engine compartment with a better rubber seal. Very minimal water intrusion as is. I loaded mine down with about 3k in the back and it was fine. No Water intrusion at all with the swim platform about 3-6" underwater. 100% needed to seal the ski pylon flap though. the water line when we loaded up was at or above the ski pylon 4" hole straight to the bilge. I would like to do something integrated but I'm pretty lazy.
