As sweet as it would be to have a PWT boat... The one I saw this summer was beat to shat.

Don't get me wrong, your wrap is nice, but the way it sits now is near perfection.

I really love the interior colors, its the same I had on my 2011 X25,but IMO better... and its only got 45 hours on it.

Your boat is beautiful. Maybe the prettiest I have ever seen. I have a Z5 rigid cargo bimini on my 2008 and it not only is highly funcitional with great coverage but it also looks really good on an XStar. I can't help bu believe yours would be enhanced by adding one too.

Ya this is what I hear from a lot of people. except no one wants to do a straight up trade for 2013 x-star

I am really happy with my xstar. It has been trouble-free and turns heads everywhere it goes..

Thanks guys for your comments. I will attempt to answer some of your questions/comments.

I do plan on putting my under the bow sheild graphic I created for my X25, but in Charcole grey with white background. I wont install that untill spring.

Just behind the MC sheild there is the word "Star", its just hard to see. the effect I was going for is to have the sheild and "Star" quite dark to almost appear like a watermark image.

The X looks pink in the image, but its actually pro-tour red.

The idea of putting on a PWT wrap on a non PWT boat? so whats the big deal? its just a wrap. You can get the 2012 PWT wrap for the current X-star so it looks like you have the 2012 PWT star. http://www.sirlinwraps.com/wraps
501s is correct, I like my boats to have 'comp' look to them - just my personal opinion. Vehicles on the other had, I perfer them stock. I coulnt find a PWT star for sale (seen one up close here in Edmonton), so I decided to make my own version, just cause I loved the graphics on it, and it was an easy fit for the boat I purchased, had it been a different color, the wrap would have ben different

Thanks for the compliment on the interior - this is one thing that I am super excited about. I was hoping to find a star with the mocha/beech interior, and now I got one.

I have been really thinking about the Z5 cargo top. I had one on my Moomba and loved it. I think I will see how I like the bimini that comes with it first before I make up my mine. The PWT star that I saw last year had the Z5 and looked really nice.

I think it will look awesome. If you want to put on PWT graphics on then go ahead! It is your boat after all. Post up some pictures of her when it's all done.

Honestly, I cannot wait to see the final product. You do a dang good job with your wraps. I am in the minority of people who do not like the stock graphics and think this wrap is going to look way better than the stock boat. It is going to look sick. Really looking forward of pictures of the actual boat and wrap!!!

Nice work!
