I have left mine in the floor of the boat and wedged them in where they wouldn't slide around or scratch anything. Of course, I only go 2-1/2 miles each way and don't get over 45 mph.

I pay $30-$40 for house/pet sitters that stay at my house. I think $100 per day with free food would be a good place to start. Probably depends on your area and the age of the kids.

I surf ropeless behind my X15 every time that I go out. Throws a pretty good surf wake in my opinion. You have to weight it properly, but I don't have any bags on the seats or the floor.

Based on your pics, I don't see any need to wet sand the entire boat. I would just compound it, then Finesse it II, sealant if desired, then wax. Lots of posts on here about the process.
