Sold it because I am building a new house and I just don't use it enough any more. I'm looking for an older 190 or 205 to replace it. Thanks for the compliment. I did love that boat.

2010 X-15 With 267 meticulously maintained hours......and a NEW FUEL PUMP.

What amazes me is Mastercrap is still building sh*t boats. We have a thread on here that is a mile long about the fuel pump issues/fixes/replacements, and they (MC) still continue to rape their loyal customers with continuous sub-par workmanship.

I hope you get taken care of by MC, marine pleasure craft products are tough and there's so many manufacturers. Differentiating is difficult and the variance in cost in craft is astounding. .i.e. Tahoe to X-star...

Not making excuses, it's too bad you had so many issues and have the privilege of paying $30K for it. Unfortunately, this ads fuel to the fire of the quote of the - "2 best days of boat ownership are..."

Good luck on the sale...one negative...you'll have to get your truck painted to match what you buy...

You'd really prefer a Star over an X15? I love the X15 but you pretty much couldn't give me an XStar.

What gave you the most trouble - drive train, construction or hi tech stuff.

You could probably name something on the boat and we've had problems with it.
