    Thumbs up Loaded on the trailer let the running in begin 310x se

    Spent the afternoon taking the stx12f off the trailer. Then freaking out that 310 wasn't going to fit beside the stx15f which I'm keeping as I have four daughters and I think the stx15 is more suited to them! Got a few friends around to help lift the 310 onto the trailer. Beer fridge now needs a restock. Glad I lubed the slides with some silicone as it slid on like a knife through butter. Thanks to nicjack for bolt location advice. So long as the weather holds for tomorrow should be day of restrained fun lol.

    I did the same thing (silicone on the bunks) as my move my 310 between my two trailers from time to time. Be VERY careful you always have the Bow eye hooked to the Trailer when going up / down the loading ramp . . . JB

    Yes I was worried about that so didn't unhook it until it was in the water. Did a couple of hours on the slow key with varying revs and then a couple of blasts with the green come to god key! Brutal power delivery compared to the Stx15f. I like how it handles, much more responsive with a lot more bite in the turns. Now just hoping tomorrow is fine!!

    The couple of hours included stops and it involved lots of varying revs and full throttle to no throttle runs to seat the rings.

    Couldn't go to hard as the river was full of logs and sticks so spent more time dodging debris than anything else.

    Today is wet and windy and 8 deg so it will be staying in the shed till the weather improves. Summers only a month or two away I hope!

    Good luck with the new Ski. This Hull is is pretty amazing when it gets rough, and the power will always surprise you. Although I sometimes prefer the playful hull of the 12/15F on smooth river days.. By the way, where are you located that summer is a month away?
