    I found some spidercracks in my pumptunnel.
    So i will need the instructions for sure.

    Did the pumptunnel reinforcement a few months ago,so the inside is ok well inforced with many layers of glassfiber and the void filled with epoxy.

    Maybe the spidercracks occured when i did the reinforcement,when i filled the void between the inner and outer hull,the epoxy got really hot ( don't know if the gelcoat can take that kind of heat) ,might be the cause of the cracks at the tunnel.

    I have a few weeks left before the season starts so i will be ready in time.

    my tunnel spidercrackes showed up before I did the void and it looks the same after that, after I did the void than I used the same stuff to mix with black color agent to patch spidercrackes, went to test 1-2 foot chop with full throtle all day long, it's look fine to me. ( make sure wet sand and use dremmel grind the spidercracks line little deep enough to patch with opoxy.) hope this help.


    Here are some pictures that I took on my friend 07 gtx broken ski before we dumped it away. I am not sure how thin on X boat.
