i think he meant fed up that some people think if they would have gotten into a g23 there screens woulda been flawless and perfect when in reality they have issues of there own aswell, just like the mc screens. he didnt mention anything about the wake, handling or price tag.

Turbo that's true. I wouldn't want any of these boats with all the electronics! They are all gonna be owner nightmares and a great source of revenue for dealers when they start failing in the future. Even the G I was on had a ballast pump that wouldn't work, not sure if it was the link or wiring but to get the starboard to fill we had to unplug the center ballast wire and connect it to the starboard pump then tell the Link system to fill the front! Love the hull and layout but not to excited about all the electronics in the G either.

Adjusting 2013+ Ballast Timers

Not to keep this drama at the top but I will for at least a day. I put this video up for the people referencing this post without actually reading it. Hopefully it helps.

I just bought a 2013 X55 at 17 hours... We now have 70 hours on the boat and it has the same phantom % reading as previously mentioned. Once the power is turned on, the center ballast tank will read anywhere from 30-60%... After emptying to 0% and recycling the power, same issue. I've also noticed that when this happens, the 30 sec ballast override for the center tank does not work. Has anyone with this issue tried to use the override instead of the touch screen?

My 2013 X10 does this as well. But I can usually top it off with the overide.

It usually happens when I do a 'fill all'. I kinda figure it is a false reading that happens when we are under way, because when I try and top it off water comes out of the overflow almost immediately.

Mine does this too. I hit go home before anchoring to swim. Go back out and it shows some random %

2013 Murphy Ballast Timers

Aren't the sending units similar to fuel tank senders. Can't they be adjusted if always giving false reading. I open hatch and look at bags to figure out level. Normally have to vent air out to know how full. I do understand your frustrations though.
