Give me the lowdown

So we took out our new to us 2008 MasterCraft X30 out for the first time yesterday. When we started the boat the temp was at 220 but when we started to go it lowered to normal temperatures. Also do you run with both batteries on?
For the perfect pass do you just put it in the mode you want and speed you want and give it throttle?
Thanks and for surfing what do you have the trim at and wakeboarding?
Thanks and if you have any other tips or things to tell me let me know Thanks.

Yes and then gave it some throttle and went down to normal operating temperature.

you may want to check the impeller.. when is the last time it was change - and or your t-stat.. that seems high even at idle.

It just got back from it's 100 hour service at the local dealership so I'm not sure because they said they changed the impeller.

Run with the setting at 1 battery. PP set the speed at idle. Throttle past that speed and leave it. PP takes over at that point.

Regarding the temp. . . after running, did you also check it back at idle? Normally, the temp will go up a bit but 220 seems pretty darn high--if it keeps happening I think you need to look for some kind of obstruction that reduced flow at low RPM.

For Perfect Pass, you should get a confirmation beep when the PP takes over so you'll know when it's in command.

I have a dual battery setup (starter and house) and use an automatic relay that joins both batteries when the motor is running. The idea is that this charges both (or one) from the alternator. With the motor off, the connection is broken so I can run my stereo and accessories off the house battery without fear of draining the starting battery. I like this automated switching for that reason. I guess you can achieve the same using a manual switch.

So put the switch on 2 or 1 battery while moving. I will check temp later this weekend when I get out to the lake.

If it was your first outing of the year and you dry block winterized, it can take a bit to fill the block with water. I wouldn't worry about it yet.

I agree--my earlier suggestion to check temp AFTER running would tend to confirm Table Rocker's post. His answer is much more to the point!
