Thanks a lot. We actually made a detailed pros and cons list and the pros list for the X-30 was longer than the pros list for the g23. Add on $85,000 and it was a no brainer.

PM your email, I got it from an awesome board member here and can pass it on to you.

I'm surprised at the reactions. It's just a boat guys. Nothing more. Get over your silly "MCOCD".

Another reason I love my MC X-30

Clamping board racks!

Unlike a lot of owners, we fish off our X30 regularly. Rod storage is never a problem for us! I would have a tough time giving up my clamping racks. We use them to dry out...

Having rode a 3rd gen Star quite a few times and driven them for contests, I am not a fan of the wake. While it may be a little bigger/steeper than my X-30, I'd take my X30 over the star any day. ...
