    Pretty normal. Seen a few like that and never did anything about it. I bet there are lots of tunnels just like yours.

    The gel on the skis is extremely thin compared to most boats, even race boats. It's not hard to burn through Doo gel with heavy duty compound. It's not normal tooling gel according to my father.

    Normally when I see that it's because the mold was not totally level and it split the paint beneath under flex
