I've got a light 10 year old boat that could use some weighing down.
A ballast system is out of the picture and I'm wondering what I should use(besides people)
Please post with some ideas

the best way is to go with water, that way when you are done boarding, you can dump it and it wont eat your gas all day, just when your boarding.

Fat sacs, fat sacs, fat sacs! But if you want to go cheap, fill storage tubs with concrete.

Go to Walmarts and get waterbed tubes, they have the same fill ends as Fat Sacs and you can use the same pump.
That is, when you upgrade, at least you still have the pump,
I use LaunchPads in 2 areas and tubes in 3 depending on the size of the space to fill
