As best I can tell, my cover leaks straight through the material. The cover is tight with no pooling or sagging anywhere. During a good rain storm, the interior of the boat is damp everywhere with...

You have no worries. An X-15 with the 6.0 liter engine should perform like a dream. My '08 X-15 had the MCX engine, and even with the smaller engine and an OEM prop, it only struggled under the...

Agree - being underpowered sucks big time. Unless you're operating at high altitudes or WAY over full factory ballast, I think the 5.7 engine would work just fine - especially if you fork out $500...

I totally agree. Aside from less violent crashes, lower boat speeds increase the size of the wake or allow the same size wake using less ballast and fuel. I'm a huge fan of lower boat speeds and...

That's a great drill. The only warning on it is it isn't "step one" - there are a number of instructional videos before this one in "The Book", the DVD instructional box set that this video came...

Even empty and driver it won't clean up at 65' without going 23? If true that is bizarre. Never heard of that. I often ride 65' @ 19 mph with full factory ballast when working on something I know...

This seems off. How do you have it weighted and at what rope length are you saying the wake is not clean? Are you sure your speedo is correct? If you're talking about a heavily weighted boat...

I dream of the day our tube finally bites the dust, but 6 years later it's faded and ratty looking but keeps on working - damn thing just won't die. I'd like nothing better than telling the kids,...

Any idea when the F150 gets it's next major remake? Is it the F150 I read about switching to all aluminum in 2015 or am I confusing it with another brand? Is it a whole new look or same style with...

Cracked fuel vent line
