First test run - x45

Well I couldn't get any friends rounded up but I couldn't resist testing out the boat now that I have gotten comfortable with it and put it through it's paces. Not bad, needs more weight in the front or under observer I think.

1/2 tank fuel, KGB full, Port full, Starboard 1/4 to 1/3
1100 rear port locker (probably fills to about 800 to 850)
400 observer (probably only about 300 because of not removing a bunch of stuff)
400 bow port (probably only about 300 to 350)

Again no peeps in the boat besides me.

This beeach takes a lot of weight ;-)

I get that shape with minimal weight on my x45. The problem arises when you switch sides. I'm a goofy rider and the wake is no where near as clean. Any luck with the other side?

I haven't tried the other side as I don't have bags setup for it. It probably would work with less weight, but I was testing solo so no body weight either.

I am still putting it through it's paces too so I am going to fiddle with various weights, if I don't need to run that much then I won't - just wanted to see what it would do with the full load.

It is insanely hard to get anyone to go out. I have been trying for 4 weeks and everyone always has work, too tired, no time, etc....kinda sucks. I haven't even been able to surf behind my new boat yet. Either the world needs to have more fun or I truly don't have any friends In all fairness school just let out so vacations galore and most my friends (and I) have younger kids. Plus the weather has SUCKED.

Anyways, once (if ever) I get to fiddle around with it I will update with more pics and weights. Sorry I can't help on the starboard side.
