Definitely my old boat, but your pic is of my '08, which was almost identical to my '09.

It just snaps in, not much more function except one more seat but I usually only have about 6 people/kids onboard so it's not an issue. The couch on the other side is the preferred lounge seat behind the cockpit. It's such an amazing boat.
Yea, not very functional, IMO. The jump seat goes in front of the rear wrap-around bench. It's a cool idea, but that is where I would often put the cooler, which was convenient and did extend the seating, sort of.
Prior boats - (3) X14's, (3) Prostars, and a Tristar.

Make sure you install this pump so the impeller is down/ near the hull. The way the water sits in the bilge this pump has a high chance to sit in water and thus get rust build up and ruin the bearing.

Replaced this same pump on my x-14 and it was a mess inside. Couldnít believe it was still working... barely. Flipped it over when installed and now donít have to worry about same failure.

Also GLWS. Love my x-14! Only wished it surfed better... but the more I ski the less I care about surfing
