    Hull delamination?????

    So I'm still on the hunt for a Rxp or Rxt. I was lookng at a 05 but have been told that they tend to drop valves. That put me into the 06/07 range. I've seen a number of brand new 08's with warantee for $7900. So I went from a $4k ski to $8K I found a neighbor with a 08 Rxp-x 15 hrs. no trailer for $7K I was all set to get it when I saw this tunnel cracking and hull delamination issues? How prevalent is it? I saw that one guy was thrown from the ski when the gelcoat ripped off?I don't want this to happen to me!
    thanks

    I Run My 2008 RXPX @ 87+ With No Issues. The Bottom Of My Ski Looks Brand New. The Only Way I Can See This Happening If There A Chip On The Fiberglass And U Can See The White Part Of It Then At High Speed Will Come Apart.

    All it takes is for someone to smack something and put a crack in the bottom without realising the damage and keep riding it. The force of the water pressure will get in the crack and rip it apart. 06+ you will be fine.

    This is a must read if you plan to buy a new or used supercharged seadoo. http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=19887 I would worrie more if its ever had a supercharger related failure then a hull delam. If you think how many rxps there are running around the hull delam is a very limited problem.
