    Ultra 150 battery tie down question

    I have a 99 ultra 150...problem is both the clips in front of the battery (toward the motor) where the bungees hook onto broke off from the fiberglass. When I bought the ski, the one was already broke, and I guess from bouncing around the second one broke off as well. Any suggestion on how I can tie down the battery and keep it secure, making sure it stays put? I looked for spots to hook the bungee onto but could not find a spot that would work, because the bungees really have to go straight over and down the battery to keep it into position. Thanks.

    I haven't really looked at it, but I would think you could re-mount the hooks by drilling some new holes and putting in some stainless sheet metal screws. Or, you might be able to secure them with 3M 5200 or an industrial adhesive.

    get some threaded inserts ( typically used for ride plate bolt repairs) glass up the old holes..install the threaded inserts with some epoxy..new bolts and clips. Problem solved. If this ski was used in salt water..those threaded inserts are going to become your friends at some point.

    hey, where can you typically get those threaded inserts? Are there specific ones used for fiberglass?

    When in doubt, try McMaster-Carr.
