Boat Buddy's are an option on the X25's

First thing I would do is double and triple check the cheap MC trailer bunk carpeting isn't going to scratch that black bottom. Have dealer replace with better carpet if so....

His first post shows it at his house with a boat buddy, then later with a roller. Regardless, adding a secondary tie down is a good suggestion for any boat that is towed.

X25John - Sweet looking boat. Just stopped at the dealer yesterday, and you are right, that tower is a nice piece of equipment, especially with cans on it looks even better. It is an "affordable" and damn functional option to the power tower.

I think the tower gives more clearance than the power tower. I have 94" clearance in my garage. It just fits.

The photos without the boatbuddy were take right after i picked the boat up, since then I added the boatbuddy myself. Apparently its an option.
