I was in Boise, ID, visiting a friend a couple of years ago, came across a guy doing something similar, although I think he was doing truck-travel trailer-boat. It didn't look like fun. Any turns...

I agree, your output shaft looks off. I haven't done it myself, but I know you can, using the adjustment bolts, move the engine from side to side to help straighten things out. Having said that,...

The main difference between your X30 and your Prostar is that the engine in the X30 is mounted backwards. The procedure to pull the impeller is the same, you'll just be working slightly blind, since...

That's a good point. From here on out, I'll try to remember to hook the ratchet strap to the bow strap. FWIW, I run the bow strap through the D-ring.
On a side, note, since I bought the boat, the...

Eh- I'd be careful about diving. A downed tree can be pretty dangerous with all the branches in the water. Could be a serious entanglement issue. If you decide to go that way, please be safe.
