Nice X25...Towing with the cover on is going be like sand paper to your gel coat, you can do it a few times and probably get away with it but long term it will have a negative impact. My MCOCD is all flared up after see ur picture of it on! Congrats on the boat!

Beautiful boat. Will be interested to hear how the X25 surfs with the gen 2.

Just got off the water for the first run. Water temp was around 54, so we didn't spend too much time in the water. But the seat heaters and the snorkel heater attachment came in handy! Engine is the 6.0. Gen 2 produced a good looking wake, just need to get it dialed in.

Had stock hard and soft tanks full and used the surf right preset. Still looking to get it dialed in more. Open to suggestions.

The wake looks long not steep. Perhaps less center tab? Unless that's what you are going for.

Take a look at the surf tabs and see where they are pined. They should be in the hole closest to the boat if I remember right.

X25 only has 1 place to pin. You will want to swap those 400lb bags that come with Gen2 for the 750lbs. They will not fill all the way, but should get 600-650lbs in them. The X25 needs around 2500+ to produce a great wake.

Congrats on the boat. Looks good.

Great boat. No cover when towing, I ratchet my 2012 up pretty good that way.

Not even with protective wrap where the cover touches the boat?

Very nice!!! Of all the MC designs I still like the x25 best, pretty boat. As others have cautioned, it's best to tow without cover. Only time I use mine is of caught towing in crappy weather.

Thanks for all the compliments! Cover was just used to bring home 20 miles in crap weather and road construction. Huge upgrade from the '99 Maristar 210. The Red really pops!!! http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/05/17/evajejen.jpg

I use about 10 wraps of the protective wrap now if I must tow with cover and it seems to work.

You have a white deck, so prob won't notice any issue from the cover, but as others have said, on long highway speed tows, the cover will cause some dull marks in the gel. I have a black deck, so very noticeable on mine.:( I am getting some cloth sewn in so I don't have to wrap it, but again as others have stated, good weather, no cover, bad weather cover of course.

As far as rear bags, I have the Sumo 600lbs, they are a perfect fit in the X25. Only thing you have to watch out for is the fiberglass pieces that extend down in the locker from the flip seats, we just throw a life jacket or towel on top to keep them from rubbing on the sacs. We fill them to about 90% for surfing.

Where the heck is the warm weather weekends, we haven't even been out yet and it's mid May, hopefully next weekend! 60 yesterday, 67 today, plus with all the rain, OH river is just nasty.

Oh well, getting some stuff done on mine and my sons house:rolleyes:

Had her out today and things went pretty well!! Was able to surf fine without the rope with stock gen 2 and the new Ronix Carbon Thruster surfer. The wakeboard wake was huge, but had a little wash to it. Wondering how to clean the lip up a little and make more smooth. Any suggestions are appreciated! Oh, and the red flake really pops when the sun hits it!!!!

When wakeboarding, what was your ballast, speed, and rope length?

We had the port and starboard ballast at 70 and center at 100. We messed with rope length with the different people. And speed was set around 21-22

Beautiful boat. That red flake with the silver is really incredible. You must be in Iowa or nearby judging by the (lack of) leaves on the trees. Hows the water temp?

Did the wake have wash on both sides?

waterguy

Close Skitilldark, Wisconsin. About 30 miles north of Green Bay. Water temps is around 63. And Nick, the port side was perfect ramp, the starboard had the wash.

Nice boat! I will echo the plastic wrap when you must tow covered and need for more ballast.
Do you have people surfing both sides or primarily just one?
After going out with a guy who had 800#'s of lead bags in his boat last summer I really liked how quick he could move it around.
