Also live in Ottawa. Congrats on the boat... looks great. Lens Cove Marine is the MC dealer here, good people ...definitely recommend them. Also if it is coming here before mid April, I'd winterized it and wash all the salt off the boat / trailer (twice). And finally, a friend of mine blew 3 tires his trailer during a recent long haul. I'd suggest buying a spare for it before it makes the trek.

KahunaCraft thanks for the advice. I am ordering 2 spare tires on rims for the trailer. Thanks for the heads up on the salt.

My old man is hauling it back for me with his RV. We discussed the trailer tire issue at length. His plan is drive early in the morning or late at night when temperatures are coolest and less people on the road. He also drives 50 mph (on a good day haha) so that should help also. I would like to apologize to any one in Texas that gets stuck behind an RV with a X45 behind it.

Very nice boat. Great colors.


On a side note, looks to me like you guide poles are bent big time. Someone had some challenges getting that bad boy on the trailer.

looks like they were adjusted to make the distance between them closer... neat idea for river loading.. hmmm... may have to investigate that.

Your right the guide posts are bent and the fender is cracked where they attach. I plan to fix that in the spring. From the pictures it looks like they had the trailer deep in the water and the boat pushed on the end of the post obviously creating a lot of force.

I emailed mastercraft and got the entire options lists. Was the plug and play ballast system an option or did all X series boats come with it. I am looking at the wakemakers package for X45s. They stipulate that the boats needs to have the "plug and play ballast system".

Below is the option list the boat has

The Standard options for this X45 are:
KGB Ballast System
Tower w/Board Racks
Ladder
Sundeck Filler Cushion
Billet Walk thru Door
V-Dig with Triducer
Stereo with Amp & Subwoofer

The added options are:
Upgraded engine to the LY6 VRS
Blk Cover
Blk Bimini
Std Tower Mirror Attachment
2 Spkrs & 2 Spkrs w/Lights
IPOD Interface
Heater
Red Fiberglass Platform w/Rubber
Underwater Lights
Heated seats
Fire Ext.
Batteries Installed
Install Drop-In Carpe
