Great price on a great boat, I still miss my 07 x2. That boat is very versatile and does so many things well. Enjoy and welcome to the club, I hope you have a sticker for your tow vehicle.

Rain magnet

Does anyone know where the factory-installed rain magnets on the X20s are located. I want to take them off. It's getting a little tiresome dragging the boat to the lake, letting everybody ride and...

Accelerate towards the boat, stay low and spin and as you come out of the spin weight on the toes and the nose and be ready to start pumping. That what works for me.

It's not rocket science, if you can do your car you can do your boat. Get an oil extractor and use the hose from the oil pan and not the dipstick tube. I use the napa platinum filters.

I would like to see a pro model like the Byerly Nautique or the Vandall Axis. I would change it every year with maybe a different pros graphics or colors. They kind of did this with the surf option.

I also wouldn't touch a 2015 or newer boat without a factory surf system and big ballast. Those in my opinion are just as important as zero off.
