    Have You Ever Cracked Your Hull?

    Stupid question I know, but I've always wondered. Have you ever cracked your hull riding, if so, how? How strong are the hulls? I'm curious. Thanks

    They are tough. We had cutomers who brought them in after hitting other craft and the pounding they take is impressive.
    On the other hand I've seen when they get a rope wrapped around the driveshaft and destroy the glass/plastic around the thru-hull fitting.
    One guy that does a ton of hull repair is Mitch out at M&M Marine is Sacramento, Ca. maybe he can better answer your question.

    Any hull Bernie.I was basicly taking a poll. I'm not broken and in need of repair, I just always had that fear of hitting a good one (swells) and landing really hard. Cracking the hull and swamping the ski on me. I'm just seeing if there is someone this has happened to. That's all.

    I've never seen it, ocean swells and all. I've even had guys that dropped their hulls off trailers down the highway, it stripped the hull to nothing but there were no cracks, just holes where they were ground through.

    Well, that's good to hear. I'm still going to reinforce the transom, since I'm going from a short pump to long pump conversion with a SS stator. The increased weight and leverage bother me. Thanks

    Why not just run the brace at the rear of the pump up the the boarding platform? Or like Hot Seat using the brace to the side of the pump area.

    I'm going to get another kit from Hot Seat. Expensive bastards, but worth it to me.

    I really like their upper bracket, I'd love to have that for my 750 with the extended pump.
