I wonder if this causes a recall or some off the wall no more 45's being built.

"Mastercraft's X45 24-foot boat was designed with a hole in the bow that could cause it to take on water"

Hmmm let me throw out a wild guess. The "Hole" in bow is the bow. As I seem to recall if you push the bow under a big roller it will actually take on water.

I see a cuddy cabin X-45 headed our way in the near future. My 240SC has only taken on water once when I came off the throttle and let it settle in to the trough of a huge roller. Came right up over the bow and about 2 gallons came in the open top hatch. Was actually pretty cool when it soaked the kids laying in the cuddy They didn't know what happened.

People are so stupid! I should have sued too!

Later,

Matt

Oh No!! My X25 has a bow ladder with the holes too!!

BRB- grabbing some tiger hair to plug holes and close the bow in before my boat sweeps all of my friends away and then filets them with the prop...

Every one of those jurors should be hit in the head with a tackhammer....idiots

A Butte County jury voted 10-2.
Following a three-month trial, evidence showed that Mastercraft's X45 24-foot boat was designed with a hole in the bow that could cause it to take on water, said Dreyer.
"The manufacturer never presented a single document to show they ever even tested this boat before putting it on the market," said Dreyer.

10 out of 12 have never operated a boat.

What a severe disappointment. We have removed the notion of personal responsibility.

Sad story for any boat owner. I don't know why MC's lawyers don't get a detailed listing of everyone and everthing on that boat. The 18 Persons or 2,928 lbs capacity is averaging 162 lbs/person and gear (coolers, boat bags, skis, boards, air chairs, etc), this is up from 150 lbs a few years ago, the USGC upped it because we're a larger nation. This boat had 19 people on board, let's weigh them up with all the gear and show that MC can't be held responsible for an over loaded boat? It's not a design flaw when the boat is not properly driven.

This. The merits of the case don't matter at all. The jury sees a girl scarred for life and the driver can't afford to pay what he'll get hit with. So they turn to the corporation, because, hey, its a corporation, not a group of individuals trying to make a living (sarcasm).

I hope this has nothing to do with the rumored X-Star becoming 24 ft for 2012......I would think they would drop X-45 if so????
