My Newest "Star"......

Well fellas,

After much reading on several threads, and discussing opinions with others here in the know, I narrowed my search down to a 205v/Xstar/X2/X1. I chose this for the size upgrade, the open bow ( a wife necessity), and of course the legendary wake and mild wake surf capability. I looked at several, both in person and some online followed with basic questions to the seller over the last 15 months, and I finally found one! After (today) 13 hours, 11 hours of driving 'round trip, + 2 hours doing my own survey, including their shop (dealer) walking me through step by step the Winterization of the vessel, I bought me a wake boat. 2002 Xstar, brand new interior, Perfect Pass, Aerial 5.5 sacs plumbed in the back (1100 lbs), stock center ballast, and a mild stereo. 520 hours (only real downside) and a tandem axle trailer. I am sure I will have many questions....

Very Nice Boat!! Congrats!!

PS 520 hours is not a lot, less than 50 hours a year or about 10 weekends on the water a year.. thats not bad.

Personally I LOVE that colour - black on white with chrome accents! The more I look at it the more I like it!!

Thanks Mark! I have always been told and understood that an engine (for something like an airplane or boat) is always better to have been run frequently to help the seals etc....I saw one just like this a few months back with only like 175 hours ('02) and I wondered about little use and prolonged storage etc. It was nice, but sold anyhow...

550 hours on an 02 is nothing. I had 400 on my 2008 Moomba 2 years ago it and it was just broken in. That is a sweet boat. Congrats.

Yep! I suspect this was the case with my boat as it stood for 2 years. I have had a real challenge getting it right and chasing issues. Fuel systems, electronic sensors etc I believe just need regular use. Mine is a 2001 and had 275 hours...
