Agree with @WakePowell. Get it fixed because it's useful when getting on plane or up to wakeboard speeds if weighted down over stock ballast. It also prevents porposing during higher speeds. You also...

I don't live too far from Corey so it made it a really easy decision for me to go with one of his covers. He did a fantastic job and was really great to work with through the whole process. I would...

Two thumbs up here for the 45. We really enjoy ours and I prefer it to the 55 because of seating a storage. You don't loose storage and space with the head on the 55. Like others have said, get the...

My original prop was 14.25x14.75 on the early X45's. The later 2008 and on X45's with the LY6 came with 14.75x15.5 which I believe is the OJ 522. I tried that prop and it was better than the...

I have a very similar setup. I tow my X45 over the mountain passes once a year with an Escalade ESV so I have the 6.2L. I usually tow with a Duramax so I am spoiled but the ESV does great. The...

To clarify you could get the 8.1 from the factory from either Indmar or Crusader if you selected the SS option. The Indmar 8.1 was rated at 450 HP (H.O. version of the 8.1) the Crusader 8.1 SS...

Sounds like a previous owner might have added the anodes if they were using the boat in Lake Union with the brackish water. The Indmar L18's were only raw water cooled so your boat is not a SS boat....

Which engine do you have? In those model years the SS boats had closed cooling Crusader engines. All the non SS boats had Indmar engines. The anodes are a good sign as well it's a SS boat but the...

The 45 loves weight. I used to roll the boat over to the side we surf but now I evenly weight the boat and use the Swell Wakeshaper. The Swell was the only shaper I could find that would fit the 45....

Aren't the X2 and X45 similar hull designs? They both have the rounded shape as the hull tampers down. I was told by numerous retailers there wasn't a shaper that would fit my boat but I was able the...

It all comes down to your comfort level. Yes the current 1/2 tons will tow a X26 but a 3/4 ton will do it much better. I tow my 45 with a 1/2 rarely and mostly tow with a 1 ton diesel. My 1/2 does...

I think your weight estimates for a loaded 45 are low. You are much closer to 8K lbs and with a full tank of fuel you could be over. The factory dry weight of 5K lbs is inaccurately low as I believe...

The tower boom mounts to the front round tower leg. It keeps the footer out of the chine spray. The downside being no more hopping in/out of the boat at speed. Now we have to start in the water....
