    Ballast Sub-System Enhancement
    The SAS ballast sub-system will insure de-watering of a significant portion of the ballast tank above a fifteen-foot depth. However, if you contemplate  operating in deeper, or un-surveyed waters we recommend you outfit your SD with a back-up gas type ballast sub-system. Mounting foundations are already in place within the SD to accept this gear. Inclusion of the gas ballast sub-system will not require any additional wiring or need of a dedicated channel as it will only activate in the event of a fail-safe initiated event -- normal ballast sub-system transmitter stick throws will only operate the vent and LPB elements of the SAS -- the gas only steps in when the transmitted signal is lost by the SD's receiver. Most users will not require the gas ballast sub-system, but it's there for you blue-water type Sailor's who sail in harms way.
