    Pro-785 Front Hood

    Any ideas on getting the front hood to fit better up front on the Pro-785's?
    The 2 I have, seem to have a pretty big gap compaired to the SL-750,

    It appears that water would just flow in at slow speed when the nose is down?
    I can adjust the left or right, and forward and back, but I can't get the front edge to come down any?

    any ideas?

    You can definatly bend the part of the hinge that bolts to the hood, I'll bet you can bend it by pushing down on the hood while it is installed on the ski.

    be careful doing that. The 97 and 98's were like that, I know it doesn't look the best but a lot of 97 and 98's are that way

    the guy that raced it before me used to put black duck tape on it,
    It didnt have a front bin to make it seal,
    I got a front bin now and put some new weather stripping around the top and bottom, but the gap sure looks big,
    thanks,

    I just used hinges from a 94 or 95 SL, and use a piece of webbing as a strap to hold it open. Then I found garage door seals to put on the hull. Seals up VERY well.
