I sold 2003 x2 in ky yesterday

I agree with jmlvmi. I would put my 552 hour boat (55 hours every year) up against one of same age with 100 hours mechanically any day. Always used and maintained. I'm sure 100 hour interior would be nicer though.
Mine had predator engine. I had to do NOTHING to boat in ten years except change fluids impeller and winterize.

How far would be your normal tow distance for the boat? I have seen vids of Zane and other guys pulling xstars with v6 Toyota SUVs do I would think you would be okay if you took it easy and only had to tow within an hours drive.

I've towed my X30 with my 97 land cruiser. When I'm going a few miles to the launch, I prefer it due to the 4wd and the ability to select low range with all 3 diffs open. For long highway trips, I uses my wife's expedition. I figure its around 6500lbs on the trailer. What is the tow capacity of your explorer?

I will typically tow the boat during the week about 15 miles. Weekends about 45 miles and holidays a little further about 150 miles. What I checked on before I bought the Explorer was it could tow up to 7100 lbs. It is a v8 with trailer towing package. I appreciate all the help. One boat I was three hours late discovering in Lansing MI was a 98 200 Maristar with 350 hours and was in amazing shape. That one sold for $19000 and was an hour drive. There is one in Mesa Arizona that I would get in a second if it was not a 28 hour drive. That one is this link

I have looked at that one and I like that one but what is an X series? I looked into a bit but the ad with 197 throws me off? Isn't it just an X2 or used to be Xstar?

i am almost posative that is a 205v. I bought my boat that year. At beginning of season they called them x series, then called them an x2. It used to be the the x-star but in 03 they came out with the pickle fork x-star. Hence the need to rename the boat. Have your local dealer lookup the Hin mbca20V5----- it was in one of the pictures. Also that is the same boat that they called an x1 up to 2011 from 04 or 05.
