    Exclamation Important sho fzr/s hull damage information

    guys not sure if your aware of this or maybe my hull is the only one, but i removed the side cowlings from my sho today to CF wrap them and was shocked at what i saw underneath on the hull.
    the plastic cowls rattle around a lot on the sho and when i installed my flow rights last year i noticed a slight discolouration from something rubbing.
    thaught nothing of it and 30 ish hrs on ive spotted this

    although this certainly wont compramize the hull as such or the ride of your ski, the reason im bringing this up is 1 am i the only one, 2 these could produce stress cracks and 3 mine are right through to the final layer of matt, if i were to press hard enough i could push my finger right through.
    ive also taken a pic of what is causing the rubbing, its a proud moulding on the underneath of the plastic,
    a tip for anybody wanting to remedy this if they have the same issue is dremel these proud sections off, and also stick some protective rubber underneath between hull and side pannel.
    if you have damage also maybe reading my thread can help you catch it before it gets to the stage im at
    let me know your thaughts

    these are the culprits that are rubbing the hull, it seems that once they start getting rough, the 2 surfaces act like sand paper and hey presto a paper thin patch

    I saw this when I had a few panels off my ski. Im still trying to decide what to line the edges with. Some type of gel spacers or something. Not really a defect. Just no protection between panels and such.

    Thanks for the heads up on this Corkey. I'm pulling mine back off and seeing if I can install some rubber barrier of some kind.

    Im not as familiar with these machines as the rest of you. I dont understand WHERE you are talking about. The pics are so close i cant see where this is happening. Are you talking about the grey plastic pieces on the corners of the machine?

    I'm pretty sure he's talking about the cowlings just below the mirrors
