I think you did very well for yourself. Its a nicely optioned, beautiful boat. Its always a long winter waiting for the spring to come, but its especially long when you buy the boat and have to wait until spring to di pit for the first time. Same situation we were in with our first MC, which also happened to be an X45.

Big Tic - 2008 X-45 here - let me know if you have any questions on the surf setup from Wakemakers. I used them and they did some cool things - plumbed in the cooler locker from my starboard pump on a valve. I dont wakeboard much anymore so it works great!

Hey TN X-45. Please do share. I am looking at setting something up that is easy. I am not interested in having to put pumpes over the side to fill sacs. I also don't want to have sacs sitting around everything must be hidden. Ideally I would do exactly what you did. A couple valves that utilize the standard Mastecraft pumps and switches.

PS my first boat was a 1988 Van Guard ski Boat with a 90HP Johnson outboard that I bought in 1997. I was only 13 years old when my parents bought it for us. We were ahead of our time and purchased 3X 40Gal drums and filled with water for ballast. After almost sinking the boat we went to 2 haha. My best boating memories come from breaking down and getting towed home and explaining why 5 teenagers have hazardous waste drums in their boat. The cops also had some concerns.

I also built a tower for my grade 10 shop class project (to replace the pole that was nothing move then a cast iron pipe and some racket straps). It worked great but was built out of steal and weighed about 500 pounds. ZERO FLEX. It was absolutly hiddious, my parents refused to be seen in the boat. But it worked for 6 years until we sold the boat to another 14 year old kid starting out boating.

How far the sport has come.

I am pretty sure that that wheel is a 5 lug on a 4 1/2" pattern.

Beautiful boat. Even though the river is iced over, I would be pretty anxious to get the boat and just look at it. There are many good times to be had in that boat! Enjoy it, as I'm sure you will.

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.
I will keep an eye out for them- espicially if they are on the side of the road changing a tire! Where in Texas do they go for the winter?
