Thanks all.

Went and helped a bit with the prep and detail today, and brought her home. Nasty wind and cold today, so I didnít get to do any surf/wake. Hopefully the weather will turn around a bit soon.

Everything went good with the setup, and the boat is perfect...... but the trailer is Navy blue for some reason

One thing I can say about the X24, is that the low speed handling, and loaded handling is not even close to as good as the XStar. I noticed that immediately.

It doesnít surprise me, because the rudder on the XStar has probably 30% more surface area. Itís MUCH bigger. I really wish they had used the same rudder on the X24.

Grabbed a couple quick shots yesterday, but nothing too exciting.

I could have swore that an engineer at the plant told us that the rudder on the 24 is the same as the star.

440, real nice! The wind is blowing again today (Saturday). I hope it calms down tomorrow for you. Definitely colder today also.

It’s funny I expect your posts to be from someone who lives in the south or where boating goes longer into the year. Not our 4-5 month boating season. I love it!

Ya, itís not even close. The XStar has a 19Ēx8.5Ē, and the X24 is 16Ēx7.5Ē.

Covi- I definitely stretch the season, but this lake stays warmer than most and later than most. Water is still 76 degrees.
