    Broken Pump Vein

    I got around to pulling the pump on my ski and noticed that one of pump veins had a huge chunk missing from it about the size of a silver dollar. I know this would obviously cause cavitation, but would it cause top speed loss as well?
    I'm going to be sending it to impros for repair after the holiday weekend but wondering if that would be the reason my ski is down on speed.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the info BD, any idea what people are using to uniformly punch out the holes on all of the other veins?
