  • I'm weigh 165, so not sure if this will help much, but I can easily climb into the compartments on each side of the engine. It gives good access to the sides of the engine. This is with the below the floor rear hard tanks in-place....

    I'm assuming you haven't tried it in the water yet. Given that you've done the work, that's what I would do next. I wonder if it'll be noisy. But other than that, I think the suggested clearance are primarily to prevent gel coat and fiberglass damage. I doubt that'll be an issue with your steel pla...

  • I have a 2014 X25 that I bought in slightly rough shape. I do all my own maintenance including big jobs like engine and transmission rebuilds. I haven't had to pull the engine or transmission on the X25, but overall it's not any harder to work on than any other v-drive. I've completely disassembled...

    replied to SeaDeck to Deckadence
    I have a friend with a 2019 XT22 with factory Deckadence with MC logos. And I've been in his boat a fair amount and he's in my boat a lot. My friend nor I like the logo's because it makes the Deckadence very stiff. So, you feel it when you walk around, and we both think it'll likely not wear evenly...

    I've done exactly what you're describing for both my X25 and my ProStar. Steps are pretty much what you outlined. The only thing I'll add is that on smaller pieces of Deckadence I did add SS Snaps at the same places as on the carpet. For large pieces, the rubber backing on Deckadence keeps it in place...

  • Can't comment on an XT21, but in a ProStar it's quite easy on the 5000 MPI. It is low down on the front of the engine, so that's not going to be the easiest place to get too on a v-drive.

    The raw water pump on the 6.2L in my X-25 is in a similar place and that takes me about 20 minutes...

    replied to What Gas do you use?
    It's easy to test if it's ethanol free. Get a small jar with a good lid and put a few ounces of the fuel in the jar. Then gently add about a 1/4-inch layer of water on top of the fuel. Close up the jar and using something like a fine point Sharpie, accurately draw a line to mark the height of the fuel/water...

    I do use cruise control and I actually have a steering wheel. I find those things to be down right useful....
