New MC Owner

Just bought a 2008 X-35. 6.0 400hp. 60 hours on boat. Took it out all weekend and had a blast. I have never owned anything other than an inboard/outboard boat; is there anything special I should know? Thanks.

Great Choice of Boat!! only thing you might want to know and I'm sure you have found out , they don't steer very well in reverse but once you get the hang of it, Best Boat I have ever owned !

Nice boat and welcome to the MasterCraft family! You have much learn about MCs and MCOCD, MasterCraft Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. But have no fear, there are many threads here for you to learn from and many with MCOCD here to help...

Sweet boat

Sweet boat, what lake are you using it on?

The reverse for sure but just remember it only pulls to the right when in reverse. Once you accept this it's easy as pie!
