What is your top speed and are you running the stock prop? What size prop?

It was in my shop. We live along the river in Ashland City and the water came up so fast over night that we were not able to get the boats or anything else out. Search X45 nashville flood and you should find the thread with pictures.

Yeah, the water did come up quick. I'm just down the river a few miles from you on the other side of the dam.

We had about 14ft of water on my property.
I used to ski below the dam some before I bought my house. I would put in at the conservation club.

Awesome, we ride from the conservation club down past riverside and down to the steam plant when we're on the river. We need to get together some time, whether you're in the 190 or the new 45...lol

I don't see me buying a new X45 maybe a used one in another year or 2 but I'll PM you sometime this summer if we come down that way to check out the new marina or shoot me one if you get up this way.

I wouldn't think that the mcx would really push the X9 over 43 to 45 even with a different prop. I'm sure we will get some more input on that as well. Just getting a feel as to how hard this boat may be to find. I've got a 190 with the 454 I might just get another X45 and keep the 190 for footin.

GPS'd 46 mph all day long with LTR 330
