    Hayden`s GP 1200X - another issue

    i thought it best i move my chit chat out of the "who`s going to hit 70 this year" thread. As some people already know this is my first ski im happy with it so far, i took possession of it 01/12/2010, the last picture is the only thing that i have found wrong with the ski, im thinking i might do the repair myself im pretty confident that i can do it myself, but i might need a little advice.
    Question
    #1- will i need to pull the motor out and flip it over to do the repair
    #2- what is the best stuff to use
    Please

    nah not at all its only along the back really. it looks like its been reversed into something whilst on the trailer or the rear tie down was ratched up to tight. the only time ive got any water in the hull was today when i was playing submarine LOL

    I wouldnt bother with it then. But if you want to fix it you will need to drill two small holes at the ends of the crack to prevent the crack from get longer. Then you need to clean out the crack with a dremel and kind of make a pocket in the crack. Finnally fill it with marinetex and sand smooth when dry. Since it is underneath and out of sight I wouldnt paint it.

    Thanks Kris i figured it would be that easy. i will paint it ive painted a few cars in my time and done a pretty nice job of them and ive got plastic welding down to a fine art now, i also figured cause its not really structural it will be just like doing some body work on a car but marinetex instead of bog.

    this repair is going to be pretty straight forward, thanks again Kris the video was good as it let me know the way i was thinking to do it was correct, there`s a couple of small gouges underneath that i will fix up whilst im at it.
    what would y`all recommend as my first eng upgrade, change air box to pod filters or something along them lines.

    The aftermarket filters are a good first modification as well as removing the choke plates and going with a primer kit. Getting rid of the stock air box allows for easier access to the carb adjustment screws and makes things easier to work on.

    A Solas XO prop is a good prop for a stock or slightly modified motor. You can have the stock head milled for more compression and it's cheap. Welcome to the forum!
