2010 x45 bow floor area dimensions?

Hey Guys,

Newbie here and recently dumped my I/O and bought an x45 and I love it!
Embarrassed that I like my I/O before I knew better!

Working on wave improvement so I recently installed a pair of 800's in rear compartments.
Improved height/shape, and now I want to make a bit longer with more push.

Need my front storage space so was thinking of putting a bag (800ish?) on the floor of the bow from console to front cooler.
Unfortunately my boat is at the lake and trying to determine what size bag would be a good fit.

Thinking it's maybe 15"x40" but want it to fit well and fill fully.
Anyone happen to have their x45 near to measure or have experience with what size bag fits well there?

Thanks in advance.

Jon

This one will fit in the bow, on the floor.

Thanks Scott.

How far into the cockpit area does that bag extend.
Don't want to worry about tripping over it when we move around and change drivers.

Thanks again.

Supposedly the X-star bow sacks fit under the front seats as well, but I have not personally confirmed it.

These will fit in the front of the boat. Ran these on my old X45 and they worked great..

You can still close the billet door with that sac in the bow.

When your 16" bags are full is there any wiggle room or do the fit pretty snugly?

Wondering if I could fit an 18" bag and have it fill completely.

Thanks

Anyone try one of these on a x45 with surf tabs?

Heard they are good at keeping weight centered.

What do you mean centered? Does that go pony the floor?

Yeah it's a big rectangle (45"x55"x9"h) that sits on the floor mid ship.

Based on some of their best set ups I've read about here, it seems that I'm 800ish#s short midship to having a great wave.

Wondering if this would be a good way to go with surf tabs.
