I'm a little confused (imagine that) about which models, if any, got the reinforced design. It looks like Ladouxmike's 2008 gp already has it installed...any idea? (Was wondering cause it's 'black covered'.)


Also, as a postscript to reinforcing, (when sealing the pump shoe), do you have to fill the 2 fixed triangular voids/pockets that the shoe rests in/hull mating surface on the 'ski-side' of the shoe? (Item 7 of the Riva illustration/instructions.)
