There is an *** for every seat, the boat looks great on the water and has pretty much every option MC would put on it, if I get $moked on it when im done with it then so be it, wrap it and move on. The payoff is $0

jimmies got plenty of hate on his absurd x-80s and sold them both for all the coin as soon as they hit the market, I would have bought the orange and blue if id seen it in time.
......alright....I'm going to backpedal slightly. Those pictures of the boat in the daylight when it is being surfed don't make it look as bad as I had anticipated. It is definitely unique for sure.

Once my eyes digested the color palette, I looked a little closer at the pic. First...props for surfing "chicken fight style".

Then, um, is someone sitting on the transom? Isn't the whole idea of the (somewhat) controversial rear seating arrangement to get people closer to the surfer, so sitting on the transom isn't needed?

So I know the boat is designed (or promoted) as a surf machine, but the promo video shows a nice wakeboard wake. I am sure marketing just says the family that wants a boat this big will surf so sell em on that. I had planned to buy the new xstar but honestly when i got in it at the boat show i was not impressed. I liked the g23 better. however have not ridden behind either yet. But when the x46 came out i thought "if that thing has a wake at least as good as the old xstar / x25 for wakeboarding it sure seems to meet the requirements for size for my growing family etc."

So mplv - have you wakeboarded behind it? any early thoughts by you or anyone else on the size / shape / etc of the wakeboard wake?

Thanks in advance.

I haven't wakeboarded but the wake is huge at boarding speed, I need my knees to make money but If someone around charlotte wants a pull id be glad to take them.

the g23 drives like something is wrong with it.

oh shoot you are kidding me. i just came from Charlotte area yesterday. had been on badin lake for 3 weeks....

i may just have to fly back and take you up on it if the local dealer isnt going to get one anytime soon.

so fly high or someone is making a custom set for the x45? how big of sacks do you think you can put in the rear lockers? with that seating configuration it looks like it wont hold 600s back there....
