Thanks for the comments guys,

The photo was take at Wabamum (at the provincial park).

Didnt get to ride as the intent was to make sure everything worked. With ballast full (3 tanks) the wake did not appear as high as an X25 with full stock ballast, but was close. With the tanks empty, at 20mph, the wake was super clean and somewhat mellow and rampy (not lippy).

For the acceleration and top speed... I can say it was a huge difference from what I have been used to with my previous 2011 and 2012 X25s. The boat quickly got up to 45mph, but I eased back on the throttle, so i never let it settle at WOT.
