Our 2008 214 with MCX does 45 with stock prop. 41-43 footing long line is no issue.

The BI quad contour boom fits the x14 with a standard windshield- no issues. I have one

BI Quad contour to the drivers side, with boom height adjuster and two extensions.

Fits behind the drivers seat, gets you out off the spray.

We also put a boat cushion on the gunnel to protect it.

Another tip: Run a rope from the stern pop up cleat to the boom. This helps with any bounce forward of the boom which could launch forward and hit the window frame.

I run mine to passenger side... may have to try the driver side as that would be much less hassle moving around in the boat.

I top out at 43 (non-gps verified) turning 4800-4900 rpm. fresh prop rework from OJ. X-14 DD MCX. Too slow for rpm?

My kid foots on my 2007X14 all the time off a Barefoot International boom. I think they call it the contoured boom or something like that. it is made to not hit the windshield. I have long line several big boys behind mine with no problem. Top speed is 43-45 mph on mine.

I think top rpm is in the 5200 range for the mcx. Maybe check with oj on an adjustment or different prop...
