My custom ballast install is about to begin and I'm taking you all along with me for the ride.
I've got $1300 invested in ballast parts from Wakemakers.com. Installing a 3 bag auto ballast system - 400 each side in engine compartment and 650 in the ski locker. Bow will be old school sac-on-the-seats.
Boat is a 2000 Nautique Super Sport. For those who don't know, the Super Sport is a Super Air Nautique without the ballast system. Thus, you can save thousands by buying a Super Sport and customizing the ballast yourself.
So far I have drilled the three separate intakes for my auto system. See pics.

seriously nice job on the install eric!

why did you choose to put them all in the same spot in the back? Arent the stock nautique intakes on each side and then in the middle? i guess it doesnt matter if the water flows in anyway.

PS arent those supposed to have strainers on the intakes? Also you might end up getting air into those cause they are one after another creating pockets.

I asked about strainers when I ordered this stuff, they told me just not to fill up in really shallow spots. We'll see.

I put them all in a line just for ease of access to the emergency shut-off valves and ease of running the hoses all to a single backboard with all three pumps.

Good point about filling, though. We'll have to see if they struggle when all going at the same time.
