Thanks for the tip. I have never completed a 360, I cant ride it out.

1/2 KGB, I will try that. I also will add another fat sack in the back beyond my extra 800 lb port tank.

My X2 was a much better surfer than my XStar. I would not go back so I just need to add more ballast to get the boat over more.

I can surf now I just dont get that 3' curl I could get in my X2. I think I will buy another sack for my back seat. It is easy to use and does help if I am short of passengers to kick the boat over

Recommendation for the next XStar surf wake

I have an 07 PWT XStar. I added the complete fly high system to my boat and still do not like my surf wake.

I was told by Jabsco to run the engine at 1100 rpm. They do fill faster which is important when you run extra fat sacks else you time out.

Thanks for the 04 pictures

Is the 04 XStar boat pattern the same as the 07 XStar?

I need a new towing cover. Evolution covers, http://evolutioncovers.com/ tells me they only have a 2004 XStar pattern. I believe the deck is the same - is that right? What about the tower support...

Board rack T handle needed

I lost the T handle on my 2007 XStar boardrack. Does anyone know where I can get one at a reasonable price? I was quoted $120 from MC, which seems high for a piece of plastic.

07 Avalanche pulls X2 well.

I have an 07 Avalanche. I pulled an 06 X2 for two years flawlessly. I now own an XStar, which is heavier and still can pull hills at 70. Great car. The X2 is a great boat!
