Weight will cause increase wear and tear on an engine...but so will having a number of people in the boat.
Having sand in your boat will ALWAYS cause you to burn more gas. If you have ballast bags you can add weight and remove it when you are not wakeboarding. If you are going to add weight I suggest bags. _________________ Wakeskating Ronix Wakeboards Wakeboarding
Just invite a bunch of people that will tell you how much they weigh. Then you can calculate where and how much ballast you need. Moving people around to adjust the wake is easier than moving sand. _________________ Wakeskating Ronix Wakeboards Wakeboarding
You can fill up coolers full of water also to see how much impact it has on the wake. _________________ There'll be two dates on your tombstone/ And all your friends will read 'em/ But all that's gonna matter is that little dash between 'em...
If you really want to load it down, you might want to think about getting another prop with less pitch just for wakeboarding. That way you wont rag the motor out so much. _________________ Hold my beer and watch this!
