RA1100 Ride-plate/Hull design.
Here's one for the go-quicker guys.
I notice the Ride-plate has big holes in it, and is set up in the hull about 3/4 inch.
I am a Seadoo specialist, and this sort of "rear" is a speed-sapping setup on them.
Is there any mileage in shimming this thing to same level as the rest of the hull, and sealing off the holes?
BTW, it is one hell of a ski, I love riding this thing, it brings back the fun aspect of Jet-Ski riding, where I dont have to worry about speed in excess of 85mph breaking bits of my anatomy.
I recommend one as a second ski to all riders. No-fuss machine. Just launch and ride.

.... and no sealing of the crater sized holes?

I have all of my holes filled underneath except the front two intake grate bolts. My ride plate is shimmed down in the front as well.

fill the middle bolt holes with epoxy and leave teh screws out. you don't need 6 to hold it on there. the stepped hull is the reason those ski's go 60mph with only 110hp. leave the rear of the plate up against the hull, and add shimms to the front bolts. take it for a ride. add shims until it bounces uncontrollably, or you loose speed, just dont let the plate hang below the grate/shoe. Once you are done setting it up and you put a few hours of seat time on it and are happy with the results, then you can fill in the bolt holes.
