A bunch of us x-30 owners just went through a discussion about re-propping our boats. I also went with the ACME 2241 -- check out this discussion from last week. I didn't get a chance to get up on a...

I'm potentially interested, as I have a 2013 X-30 and have been considering changing the graphics to go with the 2014 look. Did you also consider buying the small x-30 shield logo that sits next to...

The variety of well informed opinions on this board make it an invaluable resource to us MC owners. As the OP, I wanted to fill you all in on what I learned from talking to Greg at ACME last week (by...

Thoughts on New Prop for 2013 X-30?

I have a 2013 X-30 with the 5.7 Indmar. It has the stock hard tanks plus Fly-Hi 750#s in each of the rear compartments. We use it to surf, board and ski. In a perfect world, we would have gone with...

Yes -- I'd buy an X-30 in a heartbeat. The only thing I'd change is upgrading the engine from the 5.7 to the 6.0. We bought the last 2013 on our dealer's lot for a great price (it had 10 hours on it,...

I just went through a similar process this summer, and would echo a few earlier posters that it is tough to justify the decision on a purely financial basis. On the flip side, if part of your...

Advice on 2013 X-30 Surf Setup

Reaching out to those of you that have experience surfing the 2012/2013 X-30. I grew up skiing behind a 88 PS 190, then spent last 6 years skiing and boarding with wife and kids with our 07 X-2). In...

+1 on 501s post. I just went through this exact process, and eventually settled on a 2013 X-30 5.7. This will be my 3rd MC (96 PS 190, 07 X-2 previously), and we had an 88 PS 190 for a time growing...

+1 on the above. I just traded my 07 X-2 MCX with low hours to the local ATL MC dealer (getting a 13 X-30 for more size, surf wake), and based on the trade in amount, I expect you could pick it (or...

Why so much hate for MC on other boards?

I've spend some time on other boards recently (WakeWorld, themalibucrew, etc) while researching a potential purchase of a 2013 x-30. We were strongly considering a 2013 Malibu 23 LSV and wanted to...

Thanks, everyone, for their thoughts. We pulled the trigger today on the 2013 X-30 with the 5.7, and can't wait to take delivery in a couple of weeks (the dealer is adding a transom remote, a JL sub...

2013 X-30 - is 5.7 engine enough?

I am taking a hard look at picking up a 2013 x-30 (essentially new, less than 15 hours), but the boat is outfitted with the 5.7 liter engine. Or current boat is a 07 X-2 with the MCX, and the only...

My 07 X2 with the attitude adj plate is more than adequate for long line/15' off skiing, especially at 30 mph+. It certainly doesn't compare with my previous boat (a 96 PS 190), but not much does...

I have a 07 X2 with the AAP, and have noticed that if I leave the plate in the down position for a while, it will return to the "up" position on its own accord. It does not seem to do it unless the...

We have a place on Oconee, and love it. Yes it's a bit muddy, but the trade-off is a lack of 34' cruisers/houseboats/etc. throwing giant wakes all over the place. In fact, we have no problem...

Is the display flashing "chk eng", but all other indicators are ok (eng temp, etc.)? I (and others on this site) have had this same issue crop up with late model X2s (mine is also an 07). Although...

I would second the previous advice that you really need to ski behind both boats to evaluate both wakes. From my perspective, and based on the use/lake conditions you describe, I'd probably lean in...

I had a chance to see my boat this past weekend (in storage) and can also confirm there is NO compatability issue between the 07 braces and a 07 factory bimini.

Agree with all previous posts, but would add the Attitude Adjustment Plate if you plan to do any real slalom skiiing. It also helps trim the boat out at slower (less than 20 mph) cruising speeds.
