    Small Crack inside Hull


    I have been rebuilding an engine from an RXP 2005.

    I have noticed after cleaning the engine bay, that there is small crack inside the Hull in the fold of the fiberglass. It doesn't go to the Gel coat on the external side and its seems like its just below the surface.

    Any ideas on how to repair this at all?

    V it out with a grinder, and reglass it.. and coat the fiberglass with a protective coating like whats on it. good catch.. could of been worse.

    btw where is that area at on the ski?? front? back?>

    Does anyone know the colour of the internal hull of a 2005 RXP?

    I need to match the protective coat when I patch the crack.

    I used a screwdriver edge to cut the crack away into a "V". It seems like it may not have been a crack but an excess in the glass fiber when the hull was made and water has got into it.

    Anyway, sanded around it, cleaned it and I am going to put a layer or 2 of fiberglass anyway.

    Anyone with the color code for the Hull interior?
