The reversable rear seat is the best thing since sliced bread! Surprised Nautique let Mastercraft copy it!

If the reversable seat is Nautique's concept, perhaps there was a quid quo pro with MC's pickle fork and Naut's reversable seat...

I agree but reversible seating is much more useful than pickle fork...

Serious. I'd take the reversible seating that the x30 provides over the pickle fork of the x25 anyday. Not sure about you guys but it's very very rare that I need more space for people in my bow and most times no one sits up there when we are boarding anyway. Heck in WI we've got the wind block up and window closed to the bow most of the season!

Or do you just have that much extra weight in the boat, with half on the port and have on the starboard?

I have an extra 750 in each rear and with that full and a couple people in the boat we always found the surf wave to be awesome. But adding on another 1750 lbs would be bananas.
yes, i put a 750 in my port locker, a 370 in my port coffin, and then put another 750 on the ballast seat running along the port side (all filled as tight as I can get them). Then I'm using full kgb and full port stock tank. If I have ballast buddies sometimes I run the 750 from the ballast seat along the back seat instead of up the port.

I can't wait to borrow my neighbors 750 to add to that, to experience what Woon is talking about.

In Canada we get like 2 months of warm weather so the amount of time spent in the bow is minimal. I will also agree, the flip seat on the X-30/Star is probably the most usefull feature on our boat. Like Nordicon said, most of the time we have the bow cover on and the windows and wind door closed to try to keep warm. To me more cockpit space and the reverse seat was much much more inmportant than a picklefork bow, plus the bow on the X-30 is actually very roomy. I was just in a new star and x-25 and i didn't feel like their bow's were "way" bigger. I do like the arm rests up front, but once again I wouldn't trade anything for the flip rear seat.

Same here. The girls live in the bow on my 25.
