My new to me 07 X45 and restoration project

So I drove down to Bennett's Boat, 1000 miles each way, and picked up this X45. Needs quite a bit of work. Has a brand spanking new complete LY6 and running gear. Need new interior and a serious wet sand and will still need a little gel coat repair. There are some other things that will need to be attended to also. I think I got a good enough deal on it to make it worth while but we will see how it goes. The cleaning process starts tomorrow. Its a mess. Oh... what have a I gotten myself into.

It always amazes me that someone could buy a brand new boat like an X45 and then neglect it that bad.

Some people have so much dough that it just doesn't matter to them.

If you want to surf that boat you will need some more ballast. Hammer run over to ETSU and grab some linemen.

Cheaper to buy ballast. You ever see how much these guys eat?
