I Asked Around To See If Anyone Had Seen It Happen And Apparently Someone On Another Ski T Boned It In The Side And Then Fled,bast?**d!!!.how Far Can A Hull Be Cracked Before It Is Scrap Or Is It New Hull Time??

    RIP 1300R

    Yep I Have Insurance But Dont Really Want To Go That Way Because I Need To Be Able To Insure My Son To Ride And The Premium Would Be Huge If I Make A Claim.have Not Had Any Success Posting Pictures How Is It Done ?i Will Post Pics If I Can.have Had A Close Look At Hull And There Are Visible Cracks Just I Front Of The Bulk Head By The Battery Tray ,i Think The Other Ski Must Have Suffered Serious Damage Because Mine Has Been Hi Really Hard. I Hope His Ski Sinks And He Gets Eaten By Crabs!!

    Made me think of that commercial where the crab is saying "No Pinch, No pinch."

    SMC is repairable. Make sure the body shop KNOWS it's SMC not fiberglass.

    about attachments....
