Hello,

2012 X-30

Had a chance to play around with some ballast this weekend.

Stock KGB and STB full.

750lbs in the STB locker :)

400lbs on the floor :)

Very pleased with what we were able to achieve and enjoying the new boat! :D

Looks good! Maybe a touch too fast. I would put the 400# sac on the rear starboard seats instead of the floor to get the boat to lean more.

^ I agree!

I understand the surf wave rivals the X25, if not better. Post more pics of boat. Interior looks sick!

No doubt about that.

Love your interior, but in these parts that would leave 2nd degree burns in the 95+ degree heat. Wave looks great!

How would you achieve a longer pocket? Put weight in the mid boat area or in the front? I dont have any sacs yet, but will in the off season. Just stock plus people. 2012 x30

The guys at Fly High said told me to distribute the weight better on the side of the boat you are surfing. I did it, and my pocket is nearly twice as far off the platform as it was previous.

Pocket was longer than my previous x 45. Only had one passenger and it was tough to get a good pic while driving.

First impression, boat has great potential.

My 13 yr old had no problem riding rope free.

It was in the 90's up here, yes the interior is warm!

The black is not vinyl in this boat.

Old boats have had light interior and wanted something different.

Yea in Az that spells fourth degree burns. Last fourth of July out on the Colorado river it got to 122.

The new upholstery is great in the sun. The dark-colored pieces do not get hot in the sun any more than your T-shirt would.

That's what we've been told. That would be really nice to have.

We have the darker pieces in ours and I swear the interior on our '94 190 felt way hotter than the interior on our X30 does, and our 190's interior was white. I will say it feels hot, but like ShawnB said, not any more than your t-shirt would.

Sicke, dude! I run the same config in my '12 X-25.

I found that filling ALL 3 stock tanks gets the boat to sit more (to the stern) in the water ... then I load up the 750 pounder in the surf-side locker and I have the same 400lb bag for the surf-side floor or seat.

Can't remember what worked better: floor or seat. We're heading to the lake this weekend and I'm thinking that the 400lb bag might work best on the seat above the cooler (we mostly surf goofy / starboard).

I will report back in!!!

Btw, I'll be interested to see how you dial your wake to even more ridic levels!

Just an FYI, but the rotation of the prop can be changed relatively easy!

Huh? Do tell!

Can be reversed by switching the linkage behind the driver's panel (where the throttle is). My '03 was one of the ones that came RH from the factory and never got switched back (most did by the dealers). I switched mine to LH and have considered going back (since I'm goofy) but there really aren't any RH props that would work for my application. For example, I'd want the RH equivalent of the OJ 522 (14.75 x 15.5) and after talking to Eric found there really isn't anything close (had a 14 x 20 RH when I got it).

Scott, What is your setup on your X45? I can't get my wave to be consistant.

Thanks,
Rich

Sprybeast, I would check with ACME as they should be able to build you a RH prop that will out perform the OJ.
