    I appreciate any input anyone has to give on any of these projects. Below is a list of things getting done to the boat this winter. It may be added to as winter goes on. If you know any links to threads that can help me please post the link here.

    * Order ballast pumps
    * Order ballast bags
    * Order switch panel (fill & drain)
    * Repair fiberglass damage
    * Vinyl wrap boat (make design)
    * Powdercoat windshield frame (color TBD)
    * Tint windows

                Check WakeMakers for your ballast needs. They sell really slick kits to install factory like ballast into older boats like ours. I ran new bags, all on separate thru-hulls and pumps. 650lb bag fills in approx 4 mins. Super nice install and really easy. They're really helpful too.

                    The bearing is bad and you can hear it. It's original so it's just time for a new one.

                      That is where I plan to start scoping out my options. I'm sure they can help me. I don't think the ballast system is going to cost a lot but it is my first priority, then wrap, repairs, and windshield. I think im going to do separate thru hulls on separate pumps too.

                      I have meetings set up with a couple vinyl wrap companies this week and next. Excited to start working on these.

                        When you say "thru-hulls" did you install new inlet and new over flow for each bag? Drilled holes yourself?

                          How much for the sacs? No clue how much they go for. It they Dont sell I'll drag the new boat down and ilk see what kind of wake if any my boat can throw...if its half decent I'll buy as long as we can work out an agreement for me to borrow a board for a family vacation planned for July. No way I can spring for a surf board this year.

                            Yeah I did. They fill/drain from the same thru-hull and have an overflow vent. The pumps are reversible and really fast. Drilling is simple, I used magnets to mark the holes.

                              Hey, CBryan, I'll make you a deal... If you Buy Traxx's sacs, I'll GIVE you a wakeboard. I have an older Liquid Force Trip 133 in the rafters you're welcome to. I figure it helps spread the sport. It's got older Double Up Ultra Clamp wraps on it, and they're a little bagged out so they fit bigger feet. I'm size 8, and they fit me as easily as my buddy's size 11. It may be a bit small for you to really shred, but you'll have zero troubles learning to ride on it, and it's a great board for the Fam.

                              Unless you're referring to a surfboard, then I can't help you...
