    Pump tunnel reinforcement on 2008 RXT-X.....QUESTIONS!!!!!!

    I was doing the pump tunnel reinforcement on my 08 T-X over the weekend. I was looking at the tunned from the underside of the ski; ther are absolutely NO cracks in the gelcoat, but I saw something that caught my attetnion, and I want to make sure that it's normal...or find out if there is more that needed to be done. Let me know what you think.


    This is where the driveshaft comes out of the hull. There is a lip there about the thickness of a nickel (as pictured below).






    Good times....lol


    Thanks!

    Yeah...the thur the hull in the tunnel looks the same on my ski. In the hull, remove ALL of the form between the inner and out tunnel, then fill it with epoxy. You can further strenghten the tunnel with fiberglass or carbon fiber.

    Thanks. I just wanted to make sure. I feel a little bett about it after a couple people saying that it looks normal.


    All of the foam is out now. I am planning on picking up the west systems 205 and 105, along with a little fiberglass. Then we are going back together.

    This isn't a very good picture, but I was using my phone camera to get a good look as to how much foam was left. It's is completely cleaned out now.
