Nothing but 400 hours of trouble free enjoyment are great times on the water!

Do i go to the boat show today and buy new boat? Hmmmmm not sure they would straight up trade my xstar for a new one


IMO, why consider a new one when you have that boat! Congrats on the anniversary and I look forward to when you post the 10th anniversary 900 hours...

That's what I'm talking about. My day just got better.

Thanks

BTW, what are you running for surf balast? That's a nice looking wave.

Interesting, that's close to what I run but more balanced. Here's my setup;

Port tank - full
KGB - 3/4 full to full
Starboard tank - empty
Port locker - 1100 sack
Port storage under glove box - 750 sack

That gives me a decent wave for free surfing with just my wife driving. It gets better with more people, of course.

I'm going to try with the starboard tank full too next season. Can't hurt and will balance out the boat some. It's got a pretty good list with my setup. Oh yeah, speed, same as you, around 12 mph.

BTW, you are a big reason why we have a 40th. Last year about this time we were looking for a new boat. I showed my wife some pictures of yours. After that, every other boat she saw, she didn't like.

Thanks!!
