if you've got a pump i have a few bags you could try some time over here.

there are a bunch of concrete buckets i can let you borrow at Wiritoa too.

it's good to be able to move the weight around to see what works for your boat before you do anything more permanent.

thanks its taken about a year to get it to this stage , but have using it all summer. We work on it after work and use it in the weekends . Have managed to score about 300 kg of steel punchings to try out for ballast for the weekend so will see what happens there .

hey Marc yea where up at clive a few weeks ago was a good start to the summer season. Ended up making a scoop filled hard tank up the front which holds about 260 liters of water and a couple of 100 kg blocks of steel almost at the back with about 4 people on board the wake is much better not big or anything just more`solid and cleaner perfect for someone of my skill level. But have just moved to aussie though so wont have the boat out for a while haha, on the up side though living 10 minutes drive from lake glenbawn a big hydro lake I rocked out there today to see what it was like and ending up finding some cool locals mad keen on boarding and got to ride with them behind their new malibu so stoked as havent even been here a week and got a job with much better pay and a crew to ride with. hows it all going at clive i heard there is a private ski lake being built out the back of Waipukurau?

Jellos looks like a nice boat.

Clive starting to get busy again the boat we ride behind is undergoing a bit of a make over so hoping to have it finished soon.

Had some morning glass lately, gutted haven't been able to get out there.

Hey Marc yea the boat is really sweet the first real wake boat ive ridden behind you just can't compare them to an outboard or sterndrive so much better! pitty it was really choppy that day lol cant wait till a flat day out here it will be magic funny thing is the aussies think the water is cold and i think its like a spa. but any wak hope the boat work goes well and your back out on the water soon and its like glass for ya .
