Thanks for the input. I'll check the ballast connections and the rudder box etc and get back with my findings. There's a leak there somewhere, not enough to start the bilge pumps but enough to bother me.

MY 07 X2 is the same as yours. I replaced the plastic plug with a bronze version which helped as mine was striped when I got it. I know my rudder port leaks but not that bad and haven't gotten around to changing the seal out. It will be interesting to see what you find. I'll also be checking the ballast clamps to see if mine are loose.

My '09 X2 had that amount of water from day one, never enough to kick on the auto bilge. When we left it in the water on holiday for a week bilge would run maybe a couple times, that is when I was on it No idea over night, but again every time I checked it, about the same amount of water. I had checked the kgb fittings, never seemed to see any water coming from there, just chalked it to thats the way it was. Also, never had the kgb level drop when full. I did have the siphoning issue on the rear tanks, solved by the green impellers.

I took my x25 out for the first couple hours Saturday, bilge was completely dry???

my xstar always has water in the bilge, either from taking water into the blower vents when stopping or taking water into the ladder holes when stopping.

i conform to the rusty method of weighing an xstar

I always have some in 08 x45. Spent a couple of service trips at dealership trying to find with no luck. Gave up.

grab rudder from under boat and see if theres any play from side to side, front to back

There is a fair amount of play. My dealer said this was normal?

To be honest as this was my first MC boat I didn't know what was normal. I will investigate over the weekend and see if I can trace the leak(s)...

Only a few drops in the bilge of my SP190 … after fixing the leaking rudder post seal and the propeller shaft seal. Previously there would be 2 or 3 inches after a 2hr set. I’m not the expert but I don’t think there is supposed to be more than a tinny puddle…if you have the traditional shaft seal.
