    How did you snap it, I cant imagine my sponson ever breaking off, even if I dropped the ski off the trailer and it landed on it LOL. What happened, spinout!?!?!?!?

    I was out in the lake practicing make hard left and right turns in rough water and the outer sponson on the left side snapped off from the inner piece thats bolted to the hull.
    you can see where it tore out the plastic. The bolts were all still in the hull!.

    The thing actually snapped off. The outer piece then got bent at 90 degrees. I had to ride it home like that.
    i took them off on both sides and the ski is fine.no damage. Man did the ski ever turn hard! I almost fell off. I thought i lost the steering bolt. But it still had steering if i leaned real hard on
    the right fighting the bent sponson.
    I have some hot seat sponsons on the way. Today i will try the ski without any ans see how it rides without any.

    I have installed the hot sear ones on and they work great. These are nylon and shouldnt break like the other ones.
