    Ah-ha! Thanks for coming back to post the fix. I'll take a look the next time that I'm at my boat.

    Usually for about an hour, 2-6 times per year. Typically, I'd just take it on one cottage trip and one or two trips home for cleaning. My XLV has spent most of its life at the marina.

    I test drove a LSV and then bought an XLV after simply seeing it in the showroom. These were 2005 models, and the 2006 LSV got a bit of a deeper hull, which would be an improvement.

    Oops! Well, now that you have to replace a winch, you might as well get the right one, the Fulton F2 two-speed winch. You will never need to power on again. I upgraded to this model and it works...

    The factory FAE does not make a significant change at the surface for me. The hydrofoilers notice the submarine disturbance if they ride directly behind the boat.

    I simply use the winch to get it on. Powering on wrecks the gravel ramp. It takes a couple of experiments to find the correct amount to back in, but after that it works like a charm.

    What's the best way to get access to the bottom of the bilge area for this kind of work? When replacing my steering cable, I had to remove the hinged side door for the engine compartment and lay...

    The screw locations appear to have changed over the years. Mine weren't in all of the same locations as someone documented for a different model year, long ago. However, you can find them yourself...

    I got the bags for this, but so far have not installed them. I just use a single bag on the seat, filled using a handheld Tsunami pump. I found that the 400's are a bit too big, and pose a risk of...
