He likes to drive it seems, wonder if he can be a spotter legally? ;) This is the first out this year. Wanted to ski but no third with. Water temperature is up to 63 degrees. We are making progress. This was our Border Collie's first time out ever.

She ran like a champ. It was a great day. Okay could have been better if I'd gotten to ski. What else would you expect from a MC?

I got them from a very nice gentleman at GM. Sent me a set in white too since not sure which would've looked better on the boat, also sent some for the wakeboard and some cool bow ties too.

Should've said from my sponsor!!!

Only water that was taken in was what we pumped in on purpose to check out the new sacs we installed this spring. Can't wait to test out the wake. It's gonna be awesome. :dance:

I believe this year both are in production the x-15 is considered an early '07 I believe. The X-10 is being replaced. We ordered our X-10 before the X-15 was released. We actully took delivery of it in Aug of last year so we have 15 hours on it already. You'll notice the graphics on our boat are MC by design graphics that is because it is the exact same boat as the '05 (with some minor interior changes in the vinal and dash gauges. We did get the new rudder though. What a difference from the other model. They did that because they are phasing them out but wanted to do something to distinguish them from the '05 version. Our boat does not have the new stereo system either, they hadn't re-tooled the dash to make it fit, bummer.

Once we learned of the X-15 and the discontinue of the boat we chose we thought about trading in this year for the X-15 but there really are no advantages for us to do so. The stereo is better and the ballast is built into the floor instead of in the rear storage compartments. I belive it is an inch or two longer and maybe and inch or two wider, I forge the specs on the 15. The wake shape and size is going to be pretty much the same we were told my the dealership. They told us if we were happy with our boat there was NO advantage for us to change to the X-15. So we are staying with what we have.
