It's interesting people are saying the wake is wide on the X2 (06+). I've ridden a bunch of boats, and while the x2 isn't the narrowest, it certainly isn't the widest. I'd say it's right in between most boats.

Likewise, the wake isn't large out of the box, but it is very rampy, and very easy to hit. It doesn't launch you straight up. It has a nice gradual transition, and is very consistent. Add more weight, and it scales linearly.

Hello again. Just wanted to put in an update that I purchased a 2006 X15 last week with the 350 MCX. I went a little out of my budget. Found a good and honest seller this time. I bought it from the original owner with 188 hours on the clock. I am doing some in depth cleaning on the boat, but it is coming out nice. When I get the gelcoat all buffed out, I will post some pictures.

Thanks to everyone that helped me out on this adventure. Hopefully am going to keep this boat for a lot of years. It is a tough road buying a used boat. Now, I will start the adventure of selling my previous boat.

I agree. I think that is a better boat for everything than the X1, X2 or X10 of that era. Congrats on the purchase.

Hey, I finally was able to get a good picture of my new to me X15. Thanks again to everyone that helped me out on this thread. I got to go out on it two times before the season ended. I just finished winterizing it today. It will be a long Winter waiting until I can get her out on the water and really get to put her to use.

Nice. If you plan on keeping it on a lift or outside invest in a custom addition to your cover that covers the swim platform and the transom. The red gel on the transom takes a beating in the sun if stored outside.

That depends entirely on which way your boat faces to the sun.

On my boat the left side takes a beating.

Unhappy

I lucked out and got a storage unit that is only about 1-1/2 miles from the boat ramp that I use. So, the boat will be completely protected from the sun. The only bad thing is the door is 10 feet. The top of my light on the tower is 10 feet 4 inches. Folding the tower isn't too bad. It will be worth it to keep it out of the sun and 100% dry.

Congrads on the nice boat. Red looks good and it looks like you got some nice options on it. I am understanding your pain. I went to look at an 09 malibu VLX at a dealer on Saturdays. Boat looked nice in the pictures, but when I pulled off the cover mildew and about 10 inches of water throughout the boat.
