WANTED X-14 with 6.2L

My 07 Prostar just isn't fast enough for me to barefoot and with 2 young boys it's getting tight in the boat. Really looking for a nice X-14. I've never been in one but I keep getting told that's what I need. Let me know what you have.

I've pulled plenty of bare footers with the mcx and powerslot. Biggest guy I pulled was about 6'3" and 225. No issues. Not saying the larger motor won't help but it hasn't been a factor for me.
A buddy of mine has a prostar 35th (or 30th not sure) anniversary with the big block. It's just barely faster than mine but, like I said, at wot the mcx does it.
I would try one before you rule it out, if you happen to come across one!
Good luck =)

What speeds are you getting? Was the powerslot an option in the 197? We love the boat but for me to 1 foot it's just not there. I'm 235ish

Are you one footing long line?

My X9 does 46 unloaded with LTR 330hp. Will pull me faster than I want to go, granted I am not 235, I was 205+ when I learned to foot behind it.

One foot may make a difference...
I haven't gps'd mine so I'm guessing 47 or so. Speedo sometimes says 50, but I think it's off by a tad. Maybe Google maps with gps on will work.

Does your boat have power slot? My understanding is that non powerslot is faster. I can get faster than you are describing with less power and a larger boat on my X9

Quicker for sure but I do not think top speed is better. What is your RPM at top speed in an unloaded boat? Have you had your prop checked? I picked up a few MPH going to a CNC 3 blade from a traditional 13x13.
