Fly High X-25 Plug & Play Ballast Upgrade
If you ordered your new Mastercraft X-25 (or V225) wakeboard boat with the Plug and Play option you need these ballast bags that are custom made to fit in the rear compartments and forward storage areas.
Together with your factory ballast system you'll have over 1,500 pounds of fully automated ballast available, all of which can be controlled from the driver's seat using the factory controls.
MasterCraft Plug N Play Instructions:
The Plug 'n Play ballast system gives consumers the ability to mix and match ballast loads as an option on V-Series boats. If ordered as an option, the plumbing for the Plug 'n Play will come from the factory ready to install bags forward and aft. MasterCraft strongly recommends using only the Plug 'n Play bags from Fly High as they have been customized to fit neatly in storage areas. The rear bags take into consideration such factors as bulkhead dimensions and the raw water strainer location of each specific model. The forward bags are built to the dimensions of the storage area under the seats and around obstructions such as stereo amplifiers and wiring. Note that the bags are intended to be left inside the storage compartments even when not filled with water. The bags, particularly if they are wet, should not be left in contact with upholstery anywhere in the boat.
The most important consideration in developing these additional ballast bags was to work within the maximum capacity of each MasterCraft model in which they are equipped. When the Plug 'n Play ballast bags are filled, THE ADDITIONAL WEIGHT OF THE BAGS AND WATER MUST BE SUBTRACTED FROM THE MAXIMUM WEIGHT CAPACITY OF THE BOAT, WITH THE REMAINDER LEFT FOR PASSENGERS AND GEAR! It is always the operator's responsibility to ensure the weight of their specific MasterCraft boat, persons aboard, ballast and gasoline weight, and all gear are within Coast Guard limits.
An objective in engineering this system was for the secondary ballast bags to fill and empty with the existing ballast pumps at the flip of a switch. In order to accomplish this, the auto-fill-and-empty system that is equipped on all boats without the Plug 'n Play option is bypassed. Although you can use the BIG's Ballast screen to see if the tanks are full (or listen for the overflow), there are no sending units in ballast bags, so no bag level readout is available on the BIG.
The operator should open the front and rear storage areas where the bags are located to watch the actual bags themselves to see when they are full. To reiterate, there is NO Auto Shut-off feature for Plug 'n Play.
WARNING: All boats have weight limits. Failure to adhere to the posted limits can cause operation instability and/or the boat to sink. This may result in serious injury or death, as well as significant damage to the boat, which will not be covered by warranty. When the Plug 'n Play ballast bags are filled, THE ADDITIONAL WEIGHT OF THE BAGS AND WATER MUST BE SUBTRACTED FROM THE MAXIMUM WEIGHT CAPACITY OF THE BOAT, WITH THE REMAINDER LEFT FOR PASSENGERS AND GEAR!Here are a few additional things to know about Plug 'n Play:1. To install the bags, you will need to remove the plugs that will come with all the plumbing. MasterCraft recommends you keep track of these plugs and place them back in the plumbing when and if the bags are removed. Without the plugs or bags in place, water will make its way into the boat through these lines.WARNING: If the Plug 'n Play bags are removed from the boat, the plumbing plugs must be reinstalled in the boat to prevent unwanted and potentially dangerous intrusive of water into the boat. This water can result in the boat sinking, which can result in serious injury or death!2. Once the bags are installed, you are ready to go. In order to fill the ballast bags, after the hard tanks are filled find the Plug 'n Play switches and simply move the switch to the right so the indicator light turnsCapacity: 710lbs.
