We've been saying that for years about many of these models. A new X26 is out of my league, but there's (apparently) still a market. Heck I still remember the screams for a bare-bones slalom tug...

You bought a boat that sat for 10 years. The next guy should lowball you, as I'm sure you bought the boat for a lowball price as well. I'd definitely sell it without putting another dime into it. ...

Odd to see no KGB tank and to see ski locker access panel in its place. All X14's had the front KGB hard tank as far as I know, so this may be a conversion (I hated the KGB tank, anyway) or a 214...

13 pages of comments.... imagine if anyone liked the boat how many pages we'd have.?

And yet after all these years, I still see threads about people looking for X80's, and raving about them.

As KY said, night and day difference. If a '93 ('91 - '94 was that model's run) is in your reach, I'd definitely hold out. And he nailed the price, too. 7-8K

The X30 disappeared for a few years and was redesigned, so the reference to it by Swat doesn't really go back to '06. The latest X30's mad their debut in '14 iirc. And I'm sure he was referencing...

It's been talked to death here. It's maintenance, not hours. A lower hour boat may fail long before the higher hour boat (engine, trans, etc) if it were not maintained. I'd buy a high hour boat...

Yes. Make sure to soak the rags in water when your done. Don't just toss in the trash or leave in the garage. Some suggest burning them if you have a firepit.

Can't go wrong with either choice. Both boats do things well. Given the info, I'd lean towards the X10. Great boat. So too is the NXT20, but for $65K, I'd take an X10....

Agree! The TA is a great cleaner. Just make sure to wipe it with a rag dipped in water afterwards. Get it clean and clean, so to speak. Then wipe it with the 303

Part of the flop was the delay in introducing it. It was hyped, but then not released for some time afterwards. I think they had some unexpected redesigns to work out. Between that, wakeboarding's...

The Prostar 195/ X5 was based on the '96 - '99 Prostar 190 hull. It had a tiny open bow, which was good for 1-2 small kiddo's or for walking through to help docking. It had the same freeboard as...

The "spacers" (iirc) are just nylon washers and are, indeed, a pain to get back in place. I'm fairly sure I didn't worry about them all that much when removing my 197 and X14 platforms. Remove the...

Agreed, from all that I've read, the experts need to mix something to the original color gel to get it to match an older boat.
