--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I notice my water shoots off the prop to the starboard side at 17mph, would this affect the consistency of the wake, could it be out of alignment?

Total washout on one side and other ok bu not consistent?

I notice the prop is offset about 1 inch froim the rudder, MC tells me this is normal.

If I understand what you are saying sounds like a weight distribution problem.

Have you tried having people move from side to side when this happens?

same weight should it shooot off to the side due to the prop being offset from the rudder?

prop is offset from rudder so you can remover prop. i am not really understnading what you are tring to get at? Is the wake washy on one side??

For such a big boat the wake won't evenly clean up until about 20-21 mph depending on your weighting setup. I'm lucky to get a clean even wake at 18 with our little X1...

Agree with ridehype, you should be riding at 22-26 MPH behind the X45. Check with a GPS. If you're just learning, who cares what the wake looks like, go slower until you progress and can speed up.....

This is the case on most all inboards. I always thought it was to compensate for the rotation of the single prop, but maybe it's to remove it too.

Well, having just done this on my oldy, I know I was sure glad not to have to take off the rudder to slide the shaft into place.
