First, to answer your question, there is no easy way to read the code. A regular car obd reader won't work. You need a specific marine ECM reader. Maybe ask a dealer to read the codes.

Now, is the...

I can confirm the jumping bridge is alive and well. Jumped off it yesterday. Didn't see any no jumping signs. In fact, a sheriff drove by while we were getting ready to jump. He didn't stop or even...

I'm not sure it can be over tightened. I crank on mine pretty hard. I wish there was a way to get some lock-tite in there, mine loosens pretty easily. I keep the spanner in the boat and snug it...

Yes, that is the ZFT3. That clamp is just decorative to hide the weld seam.

To tighten the lower leg, the tool you need is called a spanner wrench. It has a pin that will go in one of those holes...

There is a nightmare story on here about uShip. Boat held hostage, tons of gel damage from a loose shrink wrap when it was finally delivered. No way would I do that.

I'm with you on valuing reliability over fuel mileage. However, a large portion of the market does care about fuel costs, not to mention having to meet government regulations. So, I'm looking...

Pretty sure JohnE had Cory make a cover for his '08 X14 DD. I believe '07-'10 direct drive X14/214s should be all the same with the ZFT-3 tower.

My '93 had wood in the back seat base. I replaced it with composite decking when I re-upholstered. I never had the side panels off so can't comment on them. But yes, definitely no wood in the hull.

I'm biased but I'd lean the 93-94. I had a '93 PS 190, arguably one of the best ski wakes of all time. That one looks in great shape and it has half the hours. Tons of life left in it.
