    any one can tell me is this normal.
    the middle of the hull has gone after 10 houers of riding.
    we put the ski in water from beach.. power sand beach.. and also bring it op from the beach..

    now the middle body work is gone and some long rift or hole has appred???
    is this normal?
    Can one get someting to attach there for protecting the skill hull from more wear..
    it looks like there are bolts and holes in the rift for fitting something..

    its my first SKI!! so im a newbi.. please help me out
    thanks....

    we land the ski on the beach like 30 times total.
    means drive the ski and cut engine just before you hit sand, and it will slide just a bit op on the beach..
    So we can go relax in the sun untill next ride..

    i was told thats normal to land the craft this way on a non stone beach.. the sand is power like "patong beach, thailand"

    Whats the long hole, rift thing i can see now its been wared down a bit??

    is there no beach landing protechtion thing to maunt down in that rift or some thing??

    You can get a keelgaurd, but it looks like you are a little beyond that.

    I would never do that with a ski... Buy a anchor or sand anchor!

    keelgaurd.. what brand is the best??
    link???

    So get it repared, new fiberglass, and then add keelgaurd???

    Well i do look after my ski, really well..
    if the hull is so weak, that after 10 hours riding, and putting it on the beach for 30 times... then yamaha has a big problem whith there nano del hull lalala.
    then its a load of BS... my friend has a seadoo, he beaching his for years, and it dos not have the same wear at all.
    and that's on a danish beach whit more ruff sand!!

    I also wonder why there is a RIFT there, like a long rift as you see in the picture, inside it has some bolts and stuff..
    what the hell are those for?
    and how do one use those when the hull is intact, you cant reach them???
