Well, it isn't really new since it already has over 30 hours... but this weekend was the first time that I got digital pics of my new baby (thanks to Tim).

Who's that good looking dude in the background? The one with the really cool tattoos?

Nice looking set up, hey how do you like the black? I was ready to order my X10 in black then heard horror stories about waterspots and how hard it is to keep clean, chickened out and went with white...........

The black hasn't given me any problems at all... not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be! I couldn't be happier with my choice of colors.

I do need to start getting some more hours on it, though. I have been spending all my time riding behind Chase's '01 (in the background) because my lake is always so crowded. Hopefully, I will be moving onto a private lake in a few months and everything will be better...

By the way... isn't it amazing that parents let a little kid like that get tattoos? He comes over to us from that wooden playground you see and is like "can I catch a ride"? He was really short, so I assume he was under 15 years old... and he had like 3 or 4 tattoos!!!

What up bro? Nice looking setup you got there!!! I was the guy that had e-mailed you a while back about your X5 and towing a Super Air. I had seen you posting on and I am looking to get the 04 X5.

Shane, sweet looking boat! You definitely need to start using it more. I've got 100 on mine since then. I'd be glad to help you out with that.

btw, any of you guys coming over this weekend for Wakefest? We've got plenty of boats running in the salt. At minimum we've got my Nautique, an X-30, a Supra Launch, and an older Malibu.

What is holding that cover up in the bow and in the main seating area? Is that to keep the rain from collecting? Is that a snap on cover for trailering? That boat is awesome... Is that tower powder coated silver? I have the same colors on my '01 with a polished tower. I'm looking to have it powdercoated but unsure of what color to go with.

How is the towing with the X5? I am looking at a 4.6 and was curious if I could tow with it. I know the 4.6 has the torque but the wheelbase is a bit short. Let me know

That cute little X5 actually tows his boat rather nicely! I have seen him do a u-turn in a 7-11 parking lot while towing the boat. If I tried that with my Excursion I would have taken out the whole building! The trailer brakes really help though. Without the disc brakes on the trailer it would probably be a little hairy. Nice vehicle though, just a little too small for my Napoleon (Farquad) complex!

That is a sweet boat!

Off the web, the following two are my favorites.

The X5 does do a great job towing. I have the 4.4i, and I am amazed at how well the car handles and can accelerate while towing the boat with 400-500 lbs. of lead in it. Of course the tandem axle trailer with disc brakes on both axles doesn't hurt anything... ;)

What you see on the cover is the patented "boat vent" system. Regular poles hold up these vents that supposedly let the boat air out, but don't let any water in. It is a pretty sweet cover... I love having one that I can tow with...
