      I don't know if I'm dreaming or not but when it was here in Colo Springs, Alan said it had 6,000 lbs of ballast in it. Does that sound right or did I not hear him correctly??

      Our XStar look just as low as yours...... good thing they have the front cover on!

        6000lbs sounds right.

          Yup, the bow cover is a necessity. At the Monroe PWT, it was taking water over the bow all day long.

                  He might of even said, stock ballast PLUS 6,000 lbs!?! Don't recall though.

                    so is the middle of the front cover supported somehow? i would think the weight of the water would shred the cover after multiple dunkings.

                      Nasty looking boats. Love the way they sit in the water.

                        it is supported by a very large fatsac.............
                        Being on the water is best, but when I'm not on the water I'm on TT.

                            I mean, sure they look great sitting in the water, but come on. That boat is barely drivable by anyone but an experience wakeboard driver.

                            I hope the new hull sits a little better in the water while fully weighted. It just so strange that the boat becomes VERY unsafe with so much weight in it.
