    Hi BriEOD,
    You had a lot of really great information regarding running your MC in brackish/salt water. Is it really true that the 8.1L motor is a closed-cooling system?

    I'm looking to purchase a freshwater-only 2nd generation (2003-2007) X-star with the 8.1L. I plan to use it exclusively in salt water though. Do you have any advice on how to maintain the boat in salt water?

    I know your post was many years ago, but I found something your wrote about surfing behind your 205 DD (below). I just picked up a 2000 205 with the same exact color scheme as the boat your pictures. It sounds like you surf behind your boat w/o ballast all over the boat. I have no idea how much ballast to add and I was hoping to keep it as clean as possible so I wanted to try adding a bag to the trunk as you suggest, one under the rear seat, and one the ski locker. Can you tell me where you found a 500 lb bag to fit the truck?

    Thanks in advance,


    I assume your talking about a DD PS 205. I have a 2000, and we can surf behind it very well. No, I don't see how you would be able to ride, sans the rope, without adding ballast. I put a 500 LB bag in the trunk, a 350 LB bag on the port wall, a 200 LB bag in the ski locker in in the walk-through, and any passengers sit on the port side of the trunk. I set the PerfectPass at 10.5 and I can ride infinitely.

    Is he in the ski club? I don't think I've met him. Thanks for the update and glad your moving some boats. Give our best to the family.

    Greg Callahan up by you just purchased a 2011 PS 190 from us and skis on the river up there

    Thought you would want to know. His boat partner is the Water Polo Coach at the Naval Academy

    Hope all is well Jim

    Yes, we surf without the rope and we move up and back on the wake. We're at about 9.5-10 mph and any extra guys I have on board sit on the trunk with their feet on the swim platform. Here is a video that will hopefully answer some of your questions. This was last season. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvU9nI_eRgg

    Good Luck

    Hello BrieEOD,

    Thanks for your comments on my post regarding the prostar 205dd vs V vs the 209. It sounds like you use your boat in a very similar mannar to how I would use it. Mainly Slalom, but then wakeboarding and surfing as well. I had a coupld of questions regarding the surfing wake behind your 205DD.

    When you weight it as described in the post, are you able to surf without the rope? If so, how big is the sweet spot and how close to the swim platform do you have to stay in order to remain in the sweet spot?

    I am pretty convinced that I want the DD for slalom, but the lake I boat on is rough much of the time and want to be able to have a good surf wake for those rough Saturday's.

    Thanks so much for your help!
