Well I couldn't get any friends rounded up but I couldn't resist testing out the boat now that I have gotten comfortable with it and put it through it's paces. Not bad, needs more weight in the front or under observer I think.

1/2 tank fuel, KGB full, Port full, Starboard 1/4 to 1/3
1100 rear port locker (probably fills to about 800 to 850)
400 observer (probably only about 300 because of not removing a bunch of stuff)
400 bow port (probably only about 300 to 350)

Again no peeps in the boat besides me. :mad:

This beeach takes a lot of weight ;-)

Shape looks just like my x30. Looks nice! Clean!

I get that shape with minimal weight on my x45. The problem arises when you switch sides. I'm a goofy rider and the wake is no where near as clean. Any luck with the other side?

I haven't tried the other side as I don't have bags setup for it. It probably would work with less weight, but I was testing solo so no body weight either.

I am still putting it through it's paces too so I am going to fiddle with various weights, if I don't need to run that much then I won't - just wanted to see what it would do with the full load.

It is insanely hard to get anyone to go out. I have been trying for 4 weeks and everyone always has work, too tired, no time, etc....kinda sucks. I haven't even been able to surf behind my new boat yet. Either the world needs to have more fun or I truly don't have any friends :mad: In all fairness school just let out so vacations galore and most my friends (and I) have younger kids. Plus the weather has SUCKED.

Anyways, once (if ever) I get to fiddle around with it I will update with more pics and weights. Sorry I can't help on the starboard side.
