Want to make sure I'm following your setup...couple of questions:

1. You have 1100 in both rear lockers? So you are really sinking more than listing?
2. What are the stock ballast tanks set at?

TIA

Couple years ago, my son had given me a GoPro for Father's Day. We promptly hit the lake to try it out. I was doing a wakeboard set with it on a chest harness. I was a bit nervous it would come...

Speaking to the financial side, the way I'd look at it is whether your depreciation potential is less than operating costs of next option.

I had a 2008 Tundra with the 5.7L V8. I liked the truck just fine and it was reliable. And it did tow the X55 okay (which is 7,000lb+ with trailer). Within spec. But I traded it in for a 2016...

One consideration that we didn't think of is engine noise. Our 7.4 has a beautiful deep throaty roar, especially when you hit the throttle. But that ends all conversation in the boat. The X26...

For now, it looks like I'm holding onto the 55 for one more season (unless an online buyer comes along). Selling it thru consignment at Boat Town is just dang...

Think you've gotten a lot of good advice. I'd be working backwards....from an acceptable new price for a 2016 ($ of MSRP), then reduce 10-12% because it's essentially a 1 year old used boat.

Question rephrased, and simplified: Why would a battery test as no voltage when in the boat, but full charged when removed from the boat? Does this make sense?
