Not sure yet. I ski'd the boat @ 32 earlier in the season, but haven't done it since then. I'll see if I can get a couple shots next time out of the wake at that speed.

Glad you got back to the dock!

How many out there have high water alarms? Very cheap and effective. I put one in because of the ballast bags and just 5200'd mine right under the engine and...

That's correct.

Lenco XDS 101 Short (shorty) actuator. You also need to buy the top mount separately. Any local boat shop should have the mount.

I doubt there is a logic board in the switch, but it does require (and has) it's own +/- wiring, as well as a Deutsch connector for the actuator. I used a Lenco 14' Duetsch harness extension as...

Installed. Turns out the Lenco Airboat single switch does not need any control box. Downside-no gauge and no auto retract. Upside-I got this done for approx. $700.

Thanks for posting that item. I did research it and the D does apparently mean Digital, so you need that dual keypad to work with the control box. I just couldn't find a good mounting location for...

Well, the Lenco control box Prostar used is no longer available new, and Lenco no longer has a unit that controls an analog gauge. I may have to go without a gauge. I think I'm OK with that.

That's an X30. By the large zinc on the rudder and galvanized trailer, it's probably a salt-water boat. That may explain the possible engine replacement.

Have you seen it? That vintage of boat...

I found a late model take-off wake plate from an X-Star on EBay. I clearance-cut the trailing edge as it needed a 9-degree bend on each side to flow with the transom. I fab'd a bending brake out of...

I did more research this weekend about the trim gauge wiring and have most of it sorted. I think I just need to find out where the Lenco signal wire is located and tap into it.

Anyway, 1st item I...

B-Nice work on the interior.

Are there any benefits to '15 fabric Vs. '03 fabric when it comes to heat??? Would I still burn my butt with the new stuff? Man, mine gets hot.

3/4" from pumps to bags. The rear bags (1100's) are only 2 feet or so from the pumps, so the short run isn't much of a concern with 3/4" hose.
