    Does anyone know how heavy the stock rear ballast bags in the X23 are? They seem really small and I'm considering removing them so I can utilize the compartments for storage. I did find a similar thread, but before removing, I'd love to know how much ballast I'd be losing by removing the bags.

    My second question would be, if i decide to remove the rear bags, all I'd have to do is connect piggyback supply to the thru-hull in the side of the boat? This supply hose would essentially become the vent hose. Is that correct?

    Thanks all!
    Yes if you remove them you would want to take that hose that comes from the floor ballast and run it to the outside for vent. If not and you run it over it will fill your locker with water.

    If I remember correctly the rear bags weigh 300 pounds
