View Full Version : Anybody Else As Crazy As Me????

Currently I own an X-45 but it took me a while to figure out that this is by far the best boat of them all.....I've had an X-30, X-STAR, X-80 (I know!! momentary lapse of judgement but at least it had twin 400's) and now the 45.....if anyone needs feedback of which one to buy I'm your man!!

You must have some great perspectives and experiences. I owned an 07 X30 and am now the owner of an X45. I am just getting acquainted with it. I love the size of the boat, and the storage is amazing. I loved my X30 wake and it seemed very consistent. The X45 wake seems similar in shape so far, but seems to respond more to wake plate changes, etc. What year was your X30?

What prop do u use for your x45. I have a 8.1 liter. Any advice?

What did you love and hate about the X-80, there's a couple of cheap ones over here that keep winking at me but I've never experienced one first hand.

The 80 is awesome for surfing and cruising but no good for any sort of skiing or Wakeboarding....we loved the roominess of the interior and the engines were awesome (except for the gas bill :)) We have a 6,9 and 10 year old that are finally ready to start doing the watersports "thing" so we switched over to the 45. I gotta tell ya the 45 lives up to all the hype. What a great boat!

@geobelt....not sure what prop I have but I'll take a look this weekend.

What is bad about wakeboarding behind an X80? I want to find one when the price comes down in about 10 years...

which X30 did you have? i'm in an 02 X30 and my next boat will be a 2nd gen X30 or X45.

Just repaced the 45 with the new 30. 1 hour in the new 30 and we are stoked.

Give us some input about your feelings, the 30 is a serious rival to the old good 45...I'm a total fanatic of the 45 but the 30 is growing on me for my next boat choice...

My dealer loves the 30.....I'm sure it's going to be great. With a wife and 3 kids plus friends any boat ges tight quick. The 45 is the best all around boat to fit a bunch of people yet still allow you to do any watersports you want......
