My 2002 X Star has the same hull and I agree with the others. It can be hard on the family in rough water but if I keep it somewhat slow, it will get us to the smooth part of the lake and is then...

I finally finished after taking most of the advice I read here. I thoroughly washed with Murphy's oil soap and then sanded it down to bare wood. Where I took a different path was instead of linseed...

Thanks, from me too! I have a 2002 XStar and I can't keep the bilge dry. I also thought I must have a leak somewhere. Good to know it is normal.

Crack in the hull

I shared this picture in a different post but I now would like some feedback on how bad this may be. The port side of the bow was hit by the brush guard of a pick up truck and there is a 12" crack...

The guy who owned the truck started it with a remote and somehow it kicked off the brake or something (standard transmission). Can't really figure it out. It just started rolling right toward us. ...

Glad all had a good time and planned the same until this truck ran into the boat while we were waiting at the ramp. Ouch, out for a while to repair the fiberglass.

I used the kit in the past and it worked well but this year for some reason I can't seem to get a consistent finish on the entire deck. I sanded and then applied step 1, 2 & 3. Should I start from...

Engine off or on while switching rider?

I have gone both ways and think it is better to turn the engine off during a quick rider switch but for some reason I worry about wearing out the starter if I stop the engine every time. I have a...

I have only had my x-star for two seasons. First season I stored it at Longhorn Storage- cheap, no frills storage on RR 620. I now keep it in a dry stack on Lake Travis, which is nice since the...

Some of these pictures are from Lake Travis where we have our '02 xstar in a dry stack. Very sad especially knowing that a lot of the water is allowed to run to south Texas where rice farmers are...

Engine dies when put in gear

Started the boat, warmed up and sounded fine but when I put it in gear to idle out of the slip, it died, repeatedly. It would start right back up with no problem but still did the same thing when...

Steering question

I have a '02 X-Star and noticed that it is much easier to turn right than left. It turns fine but takes more effort to turn left. Is this normal?

Tips for changing the impeller on a v-drive

I need to replace the impeller on my '02 xstar. I hear it can be tough to remove and replace. Any tips other than practicing being a contortionist?

Went out today and the engine started to over heat- about 220. A little smoke and smell went with it. Went back in very slowly and luckily we were close. After the boat was pulled out of the water...
