What do yall think about this boat? I have been texting him and he is sending more pictures later today. He said that it has an upgraded ballast system but one of the pumps burned out due to accidently leaving empty bag switch on and it burned up one pump. It does have over a 1000 hours but being 15 years old its not that many hours per year.

Thanks for the input

Price isn't bad but you can't see anything from the 3 photos posted.

I would be cautioned as to where they use this boat. I live in south Louisiana and some of the waters are brackish depending where he uses the boat. I order every boat as a Saltwater series for added protection. Ask where the primary use was.

A few months back a fellow teamtalker was looking at an 05 X2and when he finally looked at the boat it was in terrible condition with a tons corrosion. Some people in Louisiana do not care about the condition of there boat like others so it could be rougher than the pictures show. Just be very cautious.

That would be awesome. I don't know a whole lot about these boats so it would be great for someone more knowledgeable to look at it and say its a good boat. I will let you know something once I receive more pictures of the boat.

thanks

That's a pretty good price. Has tandem axle trailer, which helps. Interior pictures needed.....

more than likely the trailer is shot because of the use in Louisiana. I would tell you to look at a boat this age from the northern part of the US because of the water quality. I have owned wakeboats for 15 years and I can tell the older models in Louisiana suffered pretty bad with the water quality in this area. There will be rust on the engine and the trailer will need to be replaced soon as the MC trailer aren't all that great.

Shoot I have a 2015 trailer that is already rusting and I don't even use my trailer as my boat is on a lift.

Agreed, mine is at 900 hours and will have to replace at some point in the next two seasons.. That being said, you don't see these go for that price too often so other than the salt water risk, it looks like a good deal if you can get more pictures.
