Congrats and welcome! Nice X-star (I have an '05)
You're going to love that boat. What engine do you have? Any extra ballast?

Take a pic of the rudder.....if the original owner never upgraded the rudder with the larger new style you're going to want to do that. She will turn and handle much better that way.

Hey thanks for the input. When I get a chance i will get a pic up or PM you with one, and see if i need to upgrade. Also, I heard some people mentioned they also re-propped?

It has the 5.7 MCX in it. No extra ballast, but i think we will be ok with the stock ballast. My knees wont allow me to go flying anymore, on snow or water. And im already in Love! Lol

After trying several props, I am happy with the OJ 14.75 X 15.5
I use a 14.25 X 14.5 as my spare but the rpm's are higher with it.
If you have a 13.7 X 17 take it off. It's only good for cruising/high speed runs (barefooting)

Stock ballast is good, run that plus (2) 400# sacs in the rear lockers for a wake with more lip. This plus 8-10 people on board and you're golden!

That's a great area. You get to boat in non muddy water

I like the folks at Action Sports, if I had the means - my new PS 197 (in my dreams) would be purchased from them...
