How much do you think is in the bow?
I Don't fill the ski locker to ski. I have an X2 sac that holds 400lbs that I put in the front bow seat and walkway. I will fill the KGB for wakeboarding and surfing, it holds 350lbs. I put 400 in both sides to wakeboard, starboard 750 +150lb fatbrick in ski locker to surf. Have standard prop and RTP and it still does great.

Nice rig. Any info on where it came from? Guy on our lake had the exact same boat which was then sold by Coulters after a trade in.

Nice boat. Congratulations, you'll love it. I also have a 07 X1 that I bought last year in January. BAWS was able to help me get my tower braces free, my local dealer was going to charge me. I just had to pay shipping.

Funny that you mentioned all the room in the boat. I fell like it has plenty of room and storage also. Most people on this forum talk about how small the X1 is.

The ballast set-up I've recently gone to is:
750's in the rear lockers (removed hard tanks) (Had 400's last season)
370 in the ski locker
260's side sacs under the front seats. (Decided to go with the 2 side sacs under the front seats so I can fill up individually for surfing.)
Currently I only have the 750's plumbed in. I have a 3rd pump to install for the 370 and 2--260's.

Finally brought her home! The Ridgeline did just fine towing the 60 miles home, really wasn't much different from the older Prostar that I had, that trailer did not have brakes. I will say, going forward, my drive to the lake is only 10mins, otherwise maybe looking at a truck upgrade too. Plenty of room in the garage, although, I'm about 1" away from being able to put the tower up, otherwise it hits the ceiling.

any does anyone know how to confirm the color? I believe its Viper Red as opposed to Pro Tour Red, but not 100% sure.

Thanks

i have pro tour red its more of a blood look and yours dont look like that so I'd say Viper if that is the only other red one they sold.

Nice fit but I'd find a way to raise the tower and get it off your sun deck.
Someone here opened the engine cover and then lowered the tower keeping it off the upholstery

I just put a throwable floatation cushion under each speaker when I put the down. Works great.

My garage has 10' ceilings so during the winter I raised the tower back up so I could do work on things in the boat.

I'm at 9'10"!! So close-

I just used a 2x6 board, cut 2 2" holes on each each, and then capped the holes. Sits on the trailer guides, and tower rests on the board. Hopefully that works. For permenant winter storage, will probably do bungees or tied up from the ceiling
