DIY sponsons have been around since the 90's using everything from kitchen cutting boards to hi density plastic. Just remember if you make some sponsons to use a good backing plate on the inside of the hull to prevent damage. Bulk sheets are available these days in various thickness and polymers.

You have to get the following right...
- material grade...
- spacing and mounting position...
- angle mounted on the hull...
- blade size...
I went through 3 sets before I got a set that worked on my old GSX hull....
