    Would this be worth buying and fixing

    Ok i this guy has a gp1200 hull and body acc forsale for 75 but the hull has a hole in it see the pic. Is that even safe to try and patch it or should i just leave it be and not buy it. If it can be fixed easy and safetly i will buy it, just let me know what everyone thanks

    It's fixable just going to take time and money. If doing it yourself it's gonna be 150-225 iin materials. That puts you around 275.00-300. What's your plans with it?

    The issue I have is it's damaged the chine, which is crucial is tracking and speed. Are you confident you can glass it back to original shape? Have you ever worked with glass/mat? That's some pretty serious damage but is repairable. If not done right it will come back to haunt you and could be a serious issue if it lets go while on the water. I'd look elsewhere if it was me, and I'm guessing you have no expire nice as well

    Those hulls are easy to find,especially here in fl,once the motor goes,which happens a lot here,it costs almost what the ski is worth to replace it.I have seen clean gp800 hulls on craigslist here for free

    I would walk from it,unless you.know some body real good at doing body work because the repair needs to be done properly and the final filler work needs to be perfectly straight,and you need to use special filler that is suitable for under water use.it can be expensive.chances are if you wait a while,nobody else is gonna want it and he is most likely gonna end up giving it away to get it out of his yard,seen it many times.if its got a title offer him $20 and leave him your number and I bet he ends up calling u back

    Walk, the guy made the mistake on riviting a plate over it like a moron, all of it would have to be cut out then step layered back out, it can be done, but takes time stepping it and reinforcing the inside and making the chine true, If you have no Exp. in Glassing dont bother with this one.

    i just came out with a idea. wouldn't that hull help to restore the coral reef? brilliant

    ya, run. I bought a kawasaki with hull damage for what i thought was a fair price. I spent 2 and a half weeks refinishing/glassing/gelcoating the entire thing and thought i did an amazing job only to find out that it hopped all over the place over 20 mph and rode like shit, even though it looked perfect to the naked eye.
