I've thought about putting pods in mine as well, nice for keeping the boat level and helps getting the boat on plane faster.
I run a 1648 modified-v with a beaver tail 27hp long tail. I love mine, myself and another adult, dog and gear easily gets on plane and gets me from point a to b in decent time. Not the fastest but its reliable and I never worry if I'm going to make it to the blind. A third person it pushes water pretty good in the front and slower, but will still get you there. Its nice having the decoys set 30 minutes or more and waiting for shooting time compared to rushing to set decoys at shooting time.
