    Changing a 2012 Ride Plate GTR 215

    Just curious as to how the water line(S) get disconnected and how the ride plate comes down. It starts moving freely at the stearn end but as you progress to the bow end it just stops coming down.
    Thanks

    I've removed the intake grate and six bolts securing the ride plate.
    I've removed the plastic fittings and o-rings from the interior side of the hull.

    I have a wedge at the stearn end of the ride plate both left and right sides and she doesn't budge.

    I've been cutting at the silicone. I just want to make sure I'm not missing some magic screw.

    Got it off. Didn't realize you Doo boys require a much larger pry bar than the Polaris.

    Mostly pulling rocks out of it.
    My buddy Chris the plumber decided to try and pass me while I was going around a ski boat with a huge wake. He wound up on a rocky shor, pure classic move by Chris

    not sure if the 2012 ride plates are the same as the earlier ones but i know its common to use a bottle jack to jack it down.
