    Just bought a 97 xp ... I have some questions?

    Hi guys. I am new to the forum and I recently bought my first jet ski.

    I have a 97 Seadoo xp. I was told there was some work done to it but have no idea if he actually did or not. I dont know what the stock parts look like so if someone could please help me out. He said he upgraded the exhaust, intake grate and impeller.

    I noticed around the impeller the gellcoat is gone.... should the be something to worry about or will it be alright?

    Thanks, Chris

    Just make sure it doesnt get worse. Bare fiberglass absorbs water so it could get worse quick but it could also last forever

    You scuff it up real good with 80 grit and put a thick cote of west systems epoxy over it. Then scuff it up with 320 grit and paint it. Or you can gel cote it
