    after tat continue riding for abt 1 min suddenly the throttle respond goes down n up,i thought the clutch has gone..
    so i opened up my seat n to my surprise i saw water aready fill up more than half of my hull
    so i quickly ask my fren to tow my ski back to shore,drain out the water and found there is a large crack inside the pump area(im using R&D grate,the part of the hull tat crack is on the right side of the R&D logo)...so those who always ride offshore plz dun ride alone!

    is it a must to use to patch epoxy it back?
    can i use fiber glass to patch back the hull?
    plz advice tks..

    I believe you can but it has to be prepared and treated properly. i believe there was a post i read not to long ago about doing this, think it was a post regarding cracked hulls.

    Ouch. You might wanna add a cushion on those handlebars. Sounds like you are pushing the machine harder than the manufacturer ever intended; glad you are okay, be careful out there. I also highly recommend keeping an EPIRB on your person:

    Take pictures before and after you remove the grate. Out of curiosity, did you torque the grate properly?
