      I put up a new thread to see if anyone has an idea on value of the GSA. The fresh air exhaust I think can just be removed, not sure if I drilled any additional holes for that part...

            Just closed today on the 2015 X30!!!!!!! Seller delivered it to my dealer a few weeks ago, so might actually go visit her today since I'm up at the lake anyway.

                  Congrats! You’ll love it!

                  Must be Thankful for Thanksgiving boats year!
                  Our friends are headed south at about 90mph at the moment to procure a awesome Tige.
                  Idk what model it even is, but it’s blue and beautiful and I’m prepping myself for the first year of boat mooching since 2002! Gonna have to brush up on how much beer to bring and my host wipe down skills!

                    Best way to own a boat is not to! Beer is much cheaper.

                    • David, sorry to bring this one up but I was doing a little web research because I think my fuel pump may be going out at 800 hrs. ps, my 2nd one so not so bad.

                      while looking your thread showed up on the web when you did yours then it caught on fire later.

                          Biggest issue with replacement with the pump and fire is sealing the top. If you want to be sure have the tank pressure tested to 2psi after new pump assembly installed.

                          • Every year where I work we get fire extinguisher training and the one thing it has taught me these 28+ years I have been taking it is that fire extinguishers do not last long. And having been around a lot of fires I can say in a real world situation they last just about 5 seconds less than they need to.

                            So make sure you have good fire extinguishers in your house (the bigger ones, not the tiny 3-4" diameter ones) and on a boat carry a bucket. Just a 1 gallon bucket can move a lot of water in a hurry. I have used mine only once but it was for a guy that had an electrical fire. It kept arcing but I was dumping water while he got under the seat and pulled power from the battery. That shut things down and we saved his boat.
