    As soon as you seal the pump shoe the tunnel should be reinforced, Forum member coco makes them. It will start taking in water and if you look at your tunnel from the bottom you will see the tunnel were it's cracked.

    I have heard of some cases on the FZR-FZR tunnels crack but every case that i have heard off had the rear pump support bracket taken out.

    i bought the fiberglass piece fron the greenhulk store over the winter.
    i looked under the ski inside the tunnel today. there is no visible damage. a scratch here and there. i need to find someone nearby who can install the piece correctly. i will probably check out a boat repair fiberglass shop.

    The install can easily be done yourself. I did mine in about 3 hours going slow since it was my first time.

    Are you coming to Mudbug?
