Hey guys,
Just bought my first MC. Came from a 1956 vintage woody I restored with a 35hp. Big upgrade lol.

Sheís a 07 X30 that has been a lifted, heated boat house queen with an ocd owner itís whole life.
No dock dings and a like new gel coat still moist and shiny at 500hrs. Iím based out of Muskoka Ontario, in the great white north.

So a couple questions being a vdrive owner for the first time, at around 40mph I get a bit of a rear end wiggle side to side. Wondering if I need to check my rudder for slack play. Wheel is loose on the steering with no binding or anything like that. I can spin it like a 90ís pole position arcade game.
Iím just curious about the wiggle?

Oh yeah, and how do I add photos from my phone on here?

And also, Iíve totally quit wake surfing because I found a new hobbyÖ foil surfing! Anybody else here wake foil? Donít need to use the ballast, and donít even need to use the surf tabs! Itís a second wake foilers dream behind this boat.

Congrats! I have an '06 X30 and love it. I rarely have my boat do 40, but when I do I don't remember anything out of the ordinary. I would grease your rudder then check for play. I probably have about 1/8" play in mine which I never notice. I remember reading up to 1/4" in play is acceptable. Anything above that you might want to consider repacking your rudder port.

I have tried foiling but suck pretty bad. I might need to invest in a foil board and learn. From what I can tell H20Ridr is pretty passionate about foiling lol.

Where do I grease the rudder? In the engine bay rondo I have to have the boat out of the water? Totally capable to check.

You should have a grease zerk on your rudder port that you can grease it with- technically you can do it in the water, but my preferred method is to do it out of water so you can ensure grease comes out of the tiny hole on the bottom. My boat is weird and doesn't have a zerk on the port so I have to pull the rudder and grease it by hand. Im pretty sure they changed that in late 2006 though.

If your rudder port doesínt have a grease zerk you can send it to OJ fir a rebuild and theyíll add the zerk.

Is the zerk in the hull or on the underside?
