Ah, loch Tay it is! I didn't realise until recently that powerboats were allowed on the loch. Looks like a nice setup with the lodges in the background.

I've got an '00 xstar so essentially the same boat.

The transmission fluid was milky when I got the boat, checked the trans cooler, no leaks so the output seal was to blame. If the bilge fills with...

Swat, you were right, the 450 in the bow makes a big difference even with "only" running 2 x 450's in the stern. I'm working out how best to redistribute the lead (around 500-600 lbs in 40lb bags)....

Checked the alignment today, it is in line with the prop. I raised the FAE about 10mm so the z measurement is about 62mm or almost 2.5" in old money. Will see how we get on next time and I'll take...

the FAE is new and centred to the prop but I'll double check. I need to do some fiddling with it as I'm getting a lot of spray through the slatted swim platform. I'll probably have to install some...

Not happy with my x5 as a towcar. Too much wheel spin on loose ground. The 4wd on these cars is very much rear wheel focused. It does have air rear suspension so sits flat at least. Overall, not...

Fwiw, it turns out it was just excess epoxy that delaminated, no glass in it so not structural. Removed offending epoxy, cleaned and repainted. Better than new.
