The number at the end of the years is one larger. It's like the amps that go to ELEVEN. It's one more, isn't it?

Winter? There's still leaves on the trees! You guys must have the types of winters that Texans call "winter"

We liked our 2012. Had no issues with it. I drove one with a 6.2 and that's what convinced us to trade. We enjoyed our 2004 x10 with the MCX and the 6.2 handled more like our X10. Zippier. I trade cars every year or two as well.

Picked up the boat around 3:30 yesterday afternoon and headed to the lake to put some hours on it. Got it to 5 hours and I went for a board around 9pm in the butter. Only boat on the water which was nice. The Blue Canadian flake looks really great, but with the Metal Grey fleck it looks spectacular on the water.

Thanks for all those who gave me some input on the X-25. I was a little leary about trading my 2005 205v in. The Wake had a good amount of pop and I really liked the shape. I rode it with just the stock ballast and some 450's on either side of the engine. It will be really fun when we get some more people in the boat.

Here are some bad pictures from my cell phone.

I'm trying to figure out the new 2013 ballast system here and I've adjusted the timers to run with the new bags we put in the back storage compartment area. Bags are the fly high 450's. I thought the dealer told me that the ballast readings on the screen were for the internal ballast only. I guess they're not, the reading is only for the time that the pump is running for and there isn't an internal float in the tank getting an actual reading.

So my question, what does everyone have for their ballast timer for their back ballast setting? I think i have 5 minutes and 30 seconds which seems to short I guess (doesn't fill all the way). I'll play around with the timer this weekend but if it takes say 6 minutes and 30 seconds to fill for example, does it take less time to empy? I don't want to burn the impeller out, should I set the ballast timer for 30 to 40 seconds shorter to empty? Pretty much everytime i've taken the boat out of the water my gauge is reading 0 but I have a couple of minutes of water pumping out still.... I wish the ballast pumped out the side of the boat so you could see when the ballast is really empty...

Are you in for a surprise after you read this thread.

There are internal float-based senders, and we are having some issues here.

Had a boater go by and tell me the red flake looked like it was on fire. Just can't capture the flake in pictures.
