VERY NICE BOAT ! Let's hear the rest of the stats on it. And you're in the Netherlands - see many MC's around?

See what you can do about removing those other 2 banners in the workshop there - that dealer just has no loyalty!

Congrats!

lol,..don,t worry they do not sell any tige boats.I also don,t know why it,s even up there...as for trailers,i do not need one.I keep my boat in the water most of the year,so i borrow one from the dealer and then they can sell the boat and i,ll buy a new one,..this one ( my first new mastercraft) arrived a little soon.

i noticed the vdig played a video when we turned the power on,is it possible to play video,s on the screen?
i have a question for people who have a bit more knowledge about the weight set up in an x-star.i have alot of bags but the normal side sacks do not fit under the frontseats,...well the do fit but you can not fill them completely.How much should i use on top of the factory ballast to have a awesome wake.It has the LY6 and a 14.25x14.5 prop.
We do run on lpg wich could lead to a slight powerloss.

Just buy the Fly high system for the boat! you spent that kind of money on a boat, the fly high system is a drop in the bucket! You need around 3500-4000lbs total for a tournament wake!

BTW... Congratulations! I love the colors! I might get the 08 stickers for my 06!

Agreed on the ballast upgrade, we were running it this summer and LOVED it. You need to ease off of the throttle a little more than normal to keep water from coming over the sundeck but it was a trick we mastered on the first trip out.

Unfortunitally most of my buddies go bigger than I, but here's a shot of a good day.

In 2009 you will be able to upload your own video or pictures onto the VDIG.

As far as the ballast-check out the Fly High system at fatsac.com. It's a great add on and comes as a complete system or you can get just the bags.

i can,t use the fly high bags,..my rear storage is used for lpg/propane tanks....but 4000 lbs.I,m sure we can fix that without using too much lead.

corey i am used to drive overweighted boats no problem there.
About the weight could you tell me how much and where to put the 4000?If this info is availeble,why invent the wheel again..lol ;)
thanx i really apreciate it.

That sounds pretty much on par with what we were running. We ran two different X-Stars. On had the B.I. kit and the other I loaded with my own personal sacs but I set it up to mimic the B.I. set up. We put a fat sac in either storage locker in the back and a HUGE sac filled to max capacity in the bow/walkway.

p.s nice pic corey.

@ endle.....european gas prices,..but i noticed u.s.a gas prices going up also.

lpg is 66% cheaper than gas in europe.Most ski boats in europe run on lpg.
A simple impco system 425 mixer and a model E converter will do up to 325 hp,...at higher hp a multipoint sequental injection system is recomended.See link for some technical info.

I noticed on the options list for the 2008 X-Star, it has a platform ladder option. Does anyone have a picture of this?
