    Another Polaris Crash!! NO WIN

    First round of the 800 limited class and I was taken out,
    The promoter decided to do a retro old style start, with no split, just straight down and a hard left hook to the next bouys then straight down to another hard right, no inside split like we have been doing for the past several years.
    I am on the far right and I get the hole shot and we can't move over until after the white bouy, so I wait until the white bouy and being in front of the 2 seedoo's on the inside I started to turn to the left, they both went straight and
    T boned me right in the side. as you can see from the pictures of the ski I was lucky not to have lost my leg,
    All 3 of us ended up in the water, I was the farthest, the course marshall put me on his back board and took me back to my ski and it was toast, the seat gone and stearing column was ripped out of its bolt holes and hanging on the side, it hit so hard it mashed my front 2 sparks anmost flat,
    They would not let me duck tape it back together to race too tore up,
    The next race was the stand up class, and they had a big pile up and on guy hurt his leg pretty good, so the changed the start to not make it so dangerous,
    So I raced the supercharged seadoo and took 2nd on saturday and took first on sunday.
    now the big question is does anybody have just a Hull the want to sell??
    thanks,

    Congrats on the 2nd place and glad to see you aren't hurt.

    Not sure how much of a hurry you're in for a hull, but I see Polaris hulls on craigslist dirt cheap because the engine is blown. Find one on a trailer and sell the trailer and parts you don't want and you might break even.

    no hood or seat needed, I just need the hull, and if there is anyting left on it, its a plus, I will guess the weight,
    If you could tie it down to a pallet that would be a plus,

    thanks again,
