    1995 900 zxi

    I was riding my ZXI in the lake today when an old patch under the bottom of the hull let go . The hole is about 4X4". Ski didn't quite sink, but quickly beached it. Got it up on the Trailer, and got it home. I'm afraid it looks like the bottom has a large patch on it. Scrap the hull? If so, how much to pay for a new one & where to find one?

    First things first. Did the engine get water in it? If so, you MUST remove the spark plugs, ground the wires, then crank the engine to blow the water out. After that, re-install the plugs and run the engine on the hose to get all the water out. Rust will form on the crank bearings in a day, so don't wait!

    Back to your question, if the engine is OK, a good fiberglass shop can probably fix it properly for a lot less than a hull would cost you. Depending on where the hole is, they might have to pull the engine and/or tank. You can probably save money if you can do that part.

    No the engine didn't get water in it. The hole is under the tank, so I can pull that pretty easy. I'm just wondering if since its delaminated around the hole and it's right on the ridge that runs up to the tip if it's going to be an expensive difficult fix even for a fiberglass shop. the hull on a zxi that year has quite a few ridges & such that make it look hard

    I love this ski. It's been lots of fun. I'm just sick about it. And I'm due for knee surgery very soon so my ability to work on it is limited. I bought this with the motor locked & completely restored it. I did the same with a 98 SS Xi and love them both. Click image for larger version.

    You'd be amazed at what a good 'glass shop can do. They can make it look brand new.

    how bad is it, pic's ?

    sounds like a bad patch job, another hull should'nt be hard to find.

    I tend to agree. It would take a lot to repair that and it probably wouldn't be strong enough.
