    96 zxi paint/gelcoat chipping?

    Was just wondering if anyone elses ski is chipping gelcoat/paint in the footwells? Mine is a 96 1100 zxi. Maybe this One sat in the water early in it's life.

    kawasaki went to smc on the hulls and just painted them no primer just paint to plastic. so it starts coming off where water stands. i did warranty work for dealer at my body shop and we did a ton of these the first year.

    The paint doesn't just chip on those things, it comes off in sheets!

    only cure we found was to strip it and apply a waterproof primer and repaint.some epoxys are waterproof and will adhere to smc.
