Help with hull nuts
Last night I decided to take my ride plate, shoe, and grate off to do some work and I guess the brilliant person that owned the ski before me tried to do the same thing without heating the bolts up. I heated the bolts and with just a little pressure they turned, but it didnt take me long to realize that the hull nuts were turning. I need to know if anyone else has had this problem and what you did about it. I am thinking that if I can get the big globs of putty off of the inside of the hull I can have some "brackets" made like the ones that the trim tabs bolt into. I would have to have a welder weld some stainless nuts to a piece of flat strap with the correct spacing. Do you think this will work? And if so what is the best way to get the "putty" off of the inside of the hull? Thanks in advance.

Yes you can have a welder build that for you or you can buy the upgraded version from Riva or R&D. As far as the putty a heat gun and a scraper can get that off

Hydro, Thanks a lot, looks like Yamaha realized they had a problem with the poor design on the older skis. Thanks for the prompt replies guys, I am a Yamaha newbee and will need a little help along the way.
