Spent last 2days on the Lake actually Wakesurfing and not "Testing"

Went out and me the usual suspects I ride with in a couple other boats , and borrowed a Driver and spotter . :)

Today I got an water ski Couple (own a 17 ProStar) that had just learned to Wakesurf and are hooked @ 53 and 62 years old. They both rode Goofy so I got a chance to dial in that side.
I got both of them Ropeless in no time.

They woman just sent me some pics of myself.

Super happy to have a Boat again.

I agree with you here I never expected that many screens to be bad.

Larry, now that you have a new screen and motor, will you be keeping this boat til next year?

That's got to be a great feeling to have it fixed and back out on the water with confidence. It only took me 2 replacement screens, but, when everything works right, MC boats are incredibly well designed and functional.

yes Sir!! San Vicente, it re-opened last summer when I had the dirty Ole' G21..:D

Water is Nice/Clean and Deep 100++ everywhere.

The Bummer is , its still just over an hour from my house through GAS_GUZZLING terrain. :(

I'm always late to meet up with the other Boats in the crew out there, so I just poach Riders/Drivers when I get on the Lake. :D

that "thread" and its "follow up" are actually gone now, they were in the middle of the Chinese hack job so they got wiped in the cleanout process.

Super happy for you Larry. I would have lost my patience after screen three.

the X22 is a great looking boat from the video I have watched. Maybe MC will throw in a good discount. MC did this for us when we went from our 2012 X45 to a 2015 X23.

Sounds like it's almost upgrade time for you then

I'm very happy to hear that you are rocking and rolling again. On the plus side, the forum has a resident expert on where all of the individual components on the bus system of the new boats hook in. Glad that you are able to salvage some of the summer of 2018!

Lol. I don't think I will be upgrading anytime soon. If I did anything, I would get a used/demo XT20 /NXT22 and get a used 28ft. center console. I also really like the X23 and it does everything I need it to do, not to mention that it has been flawless all summer (knock on wood).

After having a 26ft. center console for the summer, I have realized we are limited as to what we can do with the X23 even though its a great boat. I have fished more this year than I ever had and we have taken tons of long boat rides to other parts of Mississippi. Outside of water sports and cruising the river its not the best for long boat ride as its burns so much gas at speeds greater than 30mph.

The Center console opens up so much more for us and my wife has made that comment in passing. She really isn't into watersports that much so having a ski boat doesn't matter to her but she knows how much I enjoy them so she is fine with that.

That is a one off from Jeff at SoulCraft.
ALLISON SOS test Model he let me borrow.
I asked him for something that both my Daughter and I could ride.
It's almost to big for her but fine for me.

Shoot we barefooted last week mid day is was so quiet out there. Have to admit its nice..



I'll buy you a beer sometime and you can give me feedback on your x20. Almost pulled the trigger on one last month but bailed out, and just put nss on my boat instead. At some point ill have to upgrade.
