That's an awesome picture.

I have close to 300 hours on my 2015 X23. Its one of the best boats that I have owned.

In looking at the X22, the flatter hulls worry me about the rough water ride which on the X23 is great.

We never do transfers so being able to switch side to side while riding doesn't matter to me. I do list the boat slightly for the goofy wave and the wave is always on point. Once the X23 is dialed, its hard to beat IMO.

Yes the X23 is sensitive to side to side weight, but to me, to get a better rough water ride, that is a sacrifice that you have to make. I cant say enough good things about the X23.

I'm going to try and get a test ride on a X22 in the spring, but I'm having a harder and harder time justifying the cost of the inboards.

They would have done better justice just cutting a couple inches off the 23, adding ballast transfer and calling it a 22.

BTW, did anyone ever figure out what the true actual differences are in freeboard and draft on the 23 vs 22??

Isn't that essentially what they did?

It was my understanding the hull is completely different. Its a lot flatter from the pictures I have seen.

Not sure on freeboard but the X23 is listed at 28 draft and X22 is 30.

I haven't done a build lately, or checked back on MC's site to see if the info was corrected, but if I remember correctly, the freeboard was significantly less on the X22 and a hull change (draft).

I agree. The hull shape is very different when you look at it from the back between the X22 and X23. I think you need to ride them yourself or wait until more folks respond to this thread to understand what that means for the wave.

I know what it means for the wave. Im sure the wave is a lot less sensitive to side to side weight difference like the X23 and the wave may be more consistent, but rough water ride is important to me so I don't see how this will be better than the X23.
