    Wife and I just purchased a new-Used 175XL, Will be firing it up in the spring, Any good ides or advice out there.
    So far I have double checked the winterization and purchased new oil and filters for spring time oil change. So far boat looks good, and runs like a champ (Havent had it in the water yet).

    Very nice! Looks like a clean one - I've said many times here, those small SeaRays are just good solid boats.

    A friend of mine had the same boat, but with the 3.0L. It was a sad story. He bought it, we ran the heck out of it for a couple of years, and then he sold it in an hour for more than he paid for it.

    (selling it was the sad part) :D
