Introduction and new boat

Hello.
I am new to this forum, but not to the world of water sports. I currently live in Minneapolis, MN, and have a lake home up in central MN. I grew up on a lake in Southwestern Minnesota, where my friends and I would ski/barefoot from ice off to near ice on - on everything from HO to Kidder, JOBE, O'Brien, canoe paddles, VAN's, and old chopped wooden skis. It wasn't until 1987/88 when we all got serious, bought a pylon from Overtons, plopped it in my dad's 1985 Bayliner Capri with an 85HP Force O/B, and foolishly tried to build a course from orange painted milk jugs, nylon rope and bricks.
Anyway, growing up I've always coveted owning a Mastercraft (though I could say I bought my first Mastercraft in 1988 - a LaPoint Pro - Ha Ha).
Well, after looking for about two years, I finally pulled the trigger on a super clean, low hour and very nicely optioned 2011 X-15.
I am looking forward to learning a bunch from all of you as I am finally living a dream of mine.

Congrats on the X-15 purchase and welcome to the family. If this is your first inboard, you have a few things to learn, and this is a great place to do just that. There is more boat knowledge here than you can imagine.........some of it even accurate. Also you should know we all love pictures.

Love the slalom course with milk jugs.......I though I was kind of crazy when I built my own jump.

Thanks all! Pics are from the dealer. Picking her up in a few weeks as we still have about 3 feet of ice on the lake, and 2 inches of salt on the roads:
