Well there is the Prostar, Maristar and X Series Treads, so why not a Saltwater Series Thread!!:toast:

I am so happy to finally be able to dunk my boat into salt, without feeling like I'm ruining it. I just keep telling myself "It's made for salt. It's made for salt. It's made for salt. It's made for salt. It's made for salt. It's made for SALT!!!!."

So lets see them!!

I just walked in the door from vacation and the boat is at the dealership. I will post a bunch of pictures when we pick it up (hopefully tomorrow). By the way, SDAhockey21, that is a beautiful boat. Congratulations. Now let's see some more saltwater series boats.

I was watching that Rewind 07 and did not realize the stringer system was different in the SWS. Has anyone drove both? Can you feel the difference? What is the price difference in comparable boats?

Mine has never been in anything but salt. The 2 hour cleaning that accompanies every use is all part of the fun to me.

Where did the X 15 decals go??

SDAhockey21
07-15-2007, 11:43 PM
Also what are the extra drain holes for? I knwo two are for ballast, and two are for the bildge pumps, But what about the 5th?

SaltwaterMC
07-15-2007, 11:46 PM
I don't know about bullit's but I know I have 3 drains for my ballast system, one for each tank. SDA, do you not have the KGB ballast tank. just the 2 rear tanks?

SaltwaterMC
07-15-2007, 11:47 PM
Who is your trailer made by bullit? And what did happen to your decals?

SDAhockey21
07-15-2007, 11:48 PM
No I have the KGB.

SDAhockey21
07-15-2007, 11:52 PM
on the starboard side from the back of the boat i have as follows

Drain for the aft bildge pump

Starboard Ballast releif drain

Drain for front bildge pump

KGB Ballast relief drain

SDAhockey21
07-15-2007, 11:52 PM
Then on the port side i have the port tank relief and thats it

SDAhockey21
07-15-2007, 11:54 PM
Do your tanks have two releif drains? I know thats not what they are called but i can't remeber the technical term.

SDAhockey21
07-15-2007, 11:56 PM
The x15 has an one extra drain for something on each side that my x2 doesn't have

SaltwaterMC
07-16-2007, 12:15 AM
I see what you're sayinig now Sam. I have the same set up as you 3 thru hulls for ballast overflow and one for each bilge. I don't know what his extra thru-hulls are for.

SDAhockey21
07-16-2007, 12:59 AM
Ya I'm not sure either

SDAhockey21

Overflow that was the word!!

bullit4888
07-17-2007, 09:23 PM
The pictures without the graphics were taken last summer. I finially got them put on over the winter and it looks much better. I love the red and black although i don't think i will ever get another black boat that goes in salt water. it's hard enough to keep it looking good in fresh water but salt just makes it that much harder. Does anyone put anything on there tower to protect it from the salt?

SaltwaterMC the trailer is make by sport boat trailers (SBT)

SDAhockey21
07-17-2007, 09:31 PM
bullit what are your extra thru hulls for?

bullit4888
08-14-2007, 06:49 PM
ok i'm pretty sure the extra thru hull is for emptying the ballast system. my ballast system empties on both sides of the boat. so i have 3 thru hulls for ballast overflow, 2 for ballast emtying and 2 for the bilge pumps.

SDAhockey21
12-08-2007, 05:55 PM
OH I see they changed that for 07.. mine is 07 so mine empty though the same thru holes that they fill through

I just recently moved to Bocas Del Toro Panama and really want to get a Saltwater edition wakeboarding boat. My only real option is Mastercraft from what I can tell and from my experaince with them on lakes I know that Mastercraft is the best option always for wakeboarding.

I have a few questions though.

If you leave a SS series boat in the saltwater over night or for a few days or weeks will it ruin it?

How far can you get on a full tank of gas?

No real roads or ramps here for trailers so trying to figure out how to make this work? Any ideas?

Anyone have a SS series boat in or near Panama?

Thanks
CC

I would say, that there are just too many variables in each one of those questions to be simply answered, to be honest with you!
Anyone?

I'm not sure if saltwater has a worse effect on gelcoat if left in the water, I know of several members on this board who leave their boats in freshwater and do a great job of keeping the gelcoat safe; IIRC it was flashydubber who told me about maintaining his gelcoat when leaving it in the water. He seemed to to an awesome job at keeping his hull cleaned. If you can opt for a shorestation or lift it will certainly be a bit less work to maintain it, but some places thats just not possible. Like Harold said "there are just too many variables..."; he hit the nail on the head for that one.

bosstone

Well anyone who has any suggestions on how long you can keep the boat in salt water and how often it should be pulled and cleaned would be great. I thought of a lift myself and will have to research into the cost of that.

Any other thoughts or suggestions would be great.

3M has a "Marine Aluminum Polish-Protectant" that works well, my previous boat was a 26' Grady White and I spent many hours, days, years, offshore covered in salt... Also in the hard to wax crevices get "Boeshield", it is an aerosol developed by Boeing for corrosion that will dry leaving a waxy film that in the crevices stand up to washes. You can usually find this stuff at West Marine.

I have left my X2 ss in the salt water for up to 4 days. Got a little scum on her from the fine water we gots here, but it comes off pretty easily. Hell. it was harder to clean it after lake Dora in Fla, than most times I use it in Salt water. BTW, it's getting towards the end of our season in a few months. I'd be willing to sell if you're intrested. Here she is.
