New (to us) X-10! First Family Boat

Well I have officially joined the Mastercraft family! Picked up a 2001 X10 this weekend.

This is our first family boat and we hope to get it in the water this weekend!

Here are some pics:

New to us X10

I will be looking to you all for some help as a first time boat owner to help me make this a great experience for my family!

Brandon

Congrats on the new boat! looks to me that your family can't wait to get that boat in the water. Did they sleep in it the first night

Thanks! We will be putting it in the water this friday (Lake Conroe). I hear that it is really nice durring the weekdays, not as many other boats on the water. Will be a good time for our first trip!

I am still trying to round up the neccessary esentials that need to be on the boat (Life Vests, Bumpers, Rope, Paddle,First Aid Kit,etc...) I did't realize there were so many little things to get!

Friday can't get here quick enough!

Sweet Pic of Noah!!!

Yes, the extra gear does cost a lot! We got our boat for about $14k and spent another $5k in goodies (some required, some not...)

Great looking boat! I especially like the picture of your passengers and one is already crashed out on the seat... in the driveway nonetheless.

Nice boat!
Maybe put up a want add on Craiglist for the USCG gear. Got to be some people with that stuff laying in the garage. I sold my extra stuff that I didn't need at a garage sale cheap. Not sure how strict the fish cops are or the rules there, but I've never been asked for a paddle upon inspection, but plan on showing them a ski if they ask for one. Don't forget an air horn. All my inspections they look for the req'd amount of life vests (sometimes based on cap of boat, others based on how many on board), fire extinguisher, air horn, registration and throwable cushion.

Ouch Lake Conroe is always a rough ride. You can find some flat water is you go north or out by Del Lago. Good Luck and nice boat
