Pretty drastic.... He's actually fills port some to un-list boat.....

I have to say that I do find the X-30 to lean a little bit to the drivers side just stock and with only a driver. I add lead to my X-30, and I always add an extra 100-150 lbs to the passenger side and that seems to create a more balanced wake for wakeboarding and general cruising.

How much weight on the passenger side will clean that up?

It looks to me one surf tab isn't retracting up. I was told by MC that after 15mph surf tabs should retract? Maybe you have one isn't retracting which is causing the lean?

I would do process of elimination. Start with no ballast and no tabs, then add tabs with no ballast, the add ballast with no tabs, then ballast with tabs. This should point out where the problem is. If it does the same lean with no ballast and no tabs then you know it has to be hull related. Which could mean too much weight on the drivers side of the boat.

What does it do it do at static? And maybe at idle? Looking to see if it is only doing while underway.

Could be water in the starboard ballast. Make sure to use the manual switches to empty the ballast and see if he gets any adjustment.

Also next time he pulls it out of the water and the touch screen says the ballast are empty, run the manual switches and see if the boat is holding water.

See what version of the software, maybe needs updating but the dealer should be doing this.

Also if you can find a calm day what does it do at static with no one on the boat, no cooler and free floating. This would eliminate driver and all people weight, hull imperfections, and tabs. Just weight would be the factor.

The boat lashburn1 is referring to is mine.

We have checked the tabs for function, alignment and proper mounting. All Good

MC sent a tech down and they modified the rear starboard side of the boat with a "Hook" to give it a lift while cruising. Helped but did not fix the problem.

I have 750's added to the rear locker (the problem was there before I ever added the 750's). While wake boarding I have to have most passengers sit on the Port side and have about 30%less in the starboard ballast to get a good even wakeboard wake.

With no one in the boat and all ballast empty the boat sits level in the water. At idle you don't notice the problem. Only while underway. Start seeing the major difference after about 21 MPH.

While my boat is on the lift I have manually emptied all tanks. Problem still there.

Software is up to date. Per the dealer.

While yours is newer, shifting one big guy (200 lbs) in my boat can make my wake do this from side to side. Are you sure the boat is weighted evenly? In my case I have 2 batteries + driver + large cooler on the starboard side so I need 2 people port (assuming no ballast filled) to even out the wake. Try removing some ballast weight starboard or a little more port side and see what happens.

Are you running the stock prop or an ACME 15"? We have found that the 15" and even some of the smaller props grab SO much water that the boat tilts a little. This is usually offset by about 220lbs or so.
