I think the 205V/X-Star/X2/X1 hull is a great crossover boat. One of the best skiing V-Drives ever made. You have bought a very versatile boat. I hope you like to wakeboard and surf as well as ski.

Any thoughts, am I doing something wrong?
Well, the review above is for a boat with a stepped hull. I know that the 205V hull was not a stepped bottom.

Any thoughts on adding ballast to bow, or planing plates (if such a thing exist for this boat)? Any idea's to how to decrease the lip, and hardness?

Wish I had the BF200 back - except for the lack of room

Attitude plate will help a lot. I plan on adding one to mine next year. I stuffed a 100lbs of lead bomb wake bags in the nose of the boat and with the KGB full it's a lot better. The wake will get smaller is always a bit hard.

It won't ski like a slalom tug, but it is a great crossover boat and gives you as good of a compromise as I've seen. I have the same hull and because I like it so much for wakeboarding and family fun, I have sort of resigned myself to the slalom wake being firm and not suited to help me achieve a PR, but still fun. Also if you have kids, this hull will help them progress a lot faster than the bigger boats because you can get them an approachable clean wake at kid - friendly speeds.

My wife finds our ('04 X2) wake to be a bit harsh down in the 26-28 mph range where she slaloms, so I usually fill up the front center factory ballast and that takes the edge off some. I took the below pictures a couple weeks ago with front ballast filled to get an idea what slalom speed would look like for me. 34 mph & 36 mph.

I saw this boat for sale and wanted to call him out as it being an x2 and not an xstar as they were advertising it to be an xstar but nowhere to post it on the ad. Was good price for an x2 anyway though. Fwiw my X30 wake doesn't flatten out till over 32. Different hull though.
