Hey guys,

Here are some pics of my X25SS. This is my first boat and so far I'm very pleased with it.
I've always wanted a proper wakeboarding boat but since I'm on the Mediterranean sea, I needed something that
can deal with rougher waters. Took the boat out for the first time yesterday and I gotta say i'm quite
impressed with its performance for a day with some chop.

Opted for the flying skull Sirlin wrap.

Seriously killer boat! Where "on the Mediterranean Sea" are you located?

Thanks guys! still have some minor issues i need to resolve like fixing the underwater lights and ballast sensor calibration. Otherwise, runs great!

I'm in lebanon, so flats are fairly limited if not non-existent. Nevertheless, there a couple of places that do the job and of course early morning sessions.

Great looking 25. How did the flush work out for you? Get everything figured out

MC X-15, thanks for the help.I did what you told me and basically plugged a hose with fresh water running through it. Seemed to do the job. Although, wasn't sure if i need to keep the engine running at all or can I just do it while its off so did it after shutting down. I'm assuming the water will get out through the bilge. Am i correct?

I need to hit you up next time I'm in lebanon. That is a super clean boat.

You want to have the motor running when you flush out. I also close the intake valve as well-just remember to open it back up when you go out the next time.

I see, good to know. but if my engine has a closed cooling system with freshwater cooling (X25SS), is that still necessary as saltwater technically never enters the engine?

The water pump that circulates the water from the hose is driven by the motor other wise you'll just be flushing the intake hose up to the impeller. With out it running you won't move any water past the impeller. You're flushing out the heat exchanger, transmission/oil cooler, exhaust risers/manifolds, ect... I have a nice diagram in my Crusader manual that shows the raw water and fresh water sides of the cooling system. It really helped me to understand how the closed cooling system worked since I had no experience with closed cooling before my current boat. Hopefully there is a similar diagram out there for you motor.

Great looking boat.......that interior is smokin' hot!

Really cool to see people all over the world realizing the enjoyment of owning a Mastercraft.

When I flush my boat it is off and on the lift out of the water. From what I understand there is a one way valve going into the heat exchange that will only accept water from the flush point on the transom. So you hook up a hose, it will go into the heater core through the 1-way valve and then should drain out the rudder area or exhaust. This will flush the heater core that cools the "radiator'. So this is the only area of the motor that is being cooled by exterior water. I may be doing it worng but have never done it another way. Boat off hooked up to the hose. Maybe someone else can chime in and have a more definate answer. But I flush with the boat off.

Im pretty sure this would be a non closed cooling system but I may be wrong. I beliebe what you talking about is a fake a lake to run your engine out of the water.

So i was just going over this in my head and the boat MUST be off to properly flush a SS series Motor. If the motor was on it would be sucking salt water in to cool the heater core and would be doing nothing. If you had a fake a lake connected out of water then thats a completely different story but for simple flushing after use is salt water the motor must be off and fresh water hose connected to the hose port on the transom. 5-10 mins should do it.

Here is the way my boat is set up. I have a Perko flush kit that is installed in line with my raw water pickup hose. If I hook up my garden hose to the Perko and close the intake valve at the hull on the raw water pickup only fresh water is making it into the closed cooling side. The Perko kit acts like a fake a lake just make sure you close the intake valve so you can't suck any salt water in while flushing. If I just hooked up a garden hose to my Perko kit without running the motor I'm not sure much water would make it past the impeller on my water pump to flush out everything.
