I ddin't think the HWS made any difference. Quicker and easier to just towel off.

Only thing I will answer is the ZFT4 tower is solid, easy to lower, trailer with it down and rock solid!

2014 X30 with GEN2 or 2014 Nautique 230 with NSS ???

God go look at the 230 and compare side by side to the X30. No comparisons.

MC all the way, I almost bought a 230 last fall until I went and saw it.

^^did you look at a 2013 or 2014 230? Big difference.

Both are great boats but like everyone else here, you should really drive/surf both.

Looks are subjective. I'd take the 2014 SAN in overall design any day. I like the X30 too, but I haven't been behind either, just been to Martin and Wizard and seen both boats in their 2013 skin. The new Nautiques are nice boats.

Martin Motor Sports is the bigger dealer, but Wizard Lake Marine is good too. Martin can't be bothered with my older boat, so I don't go there, but I'm sure a 2014 comes with better service.

Hey Warren, just get off your wallet and buy the X30. Your going to spend more money on counselling to get over your decision anxiety than the boat will cost you.LOL!

Exterior looks is where the 230's appeal ends. If/when I go to CC it'll have to be a G-Series.

The G series do perform well, but I think the SAN 230 gets a bad rap. If Harf and Murray can ride behind the 230 without problems, I'm sure the general public is fine. The 230 was the star of Defy, and it looked like it had a pretty good wake to me in that flick.

I understand the Nautiques aren't going to receive much acclaim on a MasterCraft forum, but I don't see the gap between the boats as being that big. Of course, to each their own, but if the SAN 230 and the X30 are parked side by side, I'm hooking up to the 230.
