2013 X30 Altitude change of Home?

We are close to buying a Used 2013 X30-
it was sold new and and used at 2000' Elevation.
Engine is the 6.2 Ilmore.
I am assuming the Local MasterCraft dealer set Boat up for 2000' use?
I will use at Sea Level in the SouthWest , rivers ,Lakes
Some trips to Lake Powell...

Can I use this Prop?
Do I need a "Sea Level" prop?

Is changing the Prop, a typical Task, for Trailing to diff Altitudes for vacation?

The Engine should not be a problem at diff Altitudes correct?

FYI, we will use the Boat for Cruising, Surfing, and Tubing. We have wake boards too, but that is not a priority with regards to boat performance....

Any links or tips greatly appreciated ..

If the boat is equipped with a high alt prop it will still work great at sea level and you will never have any trouble getting on plane with a ton of weight. You will lose a bit off the top end but you will still be able to hit around 40mph. Personally is keep the prop.

thanks 501s,
The Boat actually looks a bit like yours, Black Hull Red accents.
Its a used 2013 so we are just taking what we get, but owner ordered decent Package.
6.2
Pro-package
heater (nice, SD coast is colder than you would think)
Surf Tabs
Hydro Steering
Cover
Bow Filler
Tower Speakers
Flip Rear Seat...

It has the BTS windshield ....We don't really like...but...not a deal breaker..

I am having the Dealer install the Engine Flush Kit, as we used occasionally in Salt Water...

If I learn to post pic, I will...

That is a beauty! You will love it. And it's fully loaded so nothing more to really want. Enjoy the surf wave it's just excellent!

That thing is sharp. Nice


The only issue would be the high altitude prop. If you don't plan on running anything over the factory ballast I would swap that out to a more user friendly all around prop because if you plan to cruise a lot at speeds above 26-28 mph or ski it will suck your fuel like crazy. However if you just plan on boarding and/or surfing with extra weight keeping that high altitude prop would be ideal.

Thanks for the Tip,
Wasn't sure if 2,000 feet was considered Hi Altitude or not...
Is it a big deal to swap props for different trips? We are strictly trailer boaters...
Don't mind owning 2 ... Sea level and Altitude ... One could always serve as spare in a jam?
