I just picked up a 2044 for $25. Shipping to me is another $15. Not bad considering I'm in the UK!

I must admit I don't get the whole transom remote fetish. To me the person who controls the music is the driver. End of discussion.

That could have been my ankle 3 months ago. Went over on it playing tennis, large snapping sound, lots of pain, closely followed by a lot of foul language. I was given the "at your age" it's going to...

I wouldn't worry too much about low hours. I would however inquire as to how it was winterised, were the cylinder bores oiled? Problem being, as the boat is with a dealer they will likely have no...

are you checking the voltage under load? My MMDC was showing 12+ volts until the ignition was on, it would then drop to 11v - where all the problems would start.

I just replaced the starter on my '00 xstar as the original was becoming a little temperamental. For the fun of it I stripped down the old motor, I was amazed at the amount of rust in there, plus two...

If you get really stuck.....

Wake and ski in the UK sold me a few last year. Shipping to the U.S. Would be pretty cheap.

great place to start and it looks pretty reasonable to me. I brought an '00 Xstar (same boat) back to life over the last few years and customised it along the way. Don't rush things and tackle one...

Never seen that before. I guess, as our roads have bends in Europe, raising your centre of gravity like that would be a recipe for disaster. We also don't have f350's...
