Ride plate question
Is there supposed to be sealant by all the edges of my ride plate?? Seams like I'm missing some..
Also I attempted to fill the ride plate holes but how do y'all work with "the rite stuff"? It's sticky as all hell and when I go to flatten it down it takes the duct tape and rope off with it ??

Little corrosion on your plate? Usually the silicone will run most of the way, but not all the way back on the plate. I use a body filler spreader to smooth silicone out, a little thinner will help on the right stuff. Its gooey alright

Haha I'm guessing not all ride plates look like that lmao... Must be te salt water..
Can I give the whole ride plate a light sanding to get rid of that?
it is the ride plate.. this is really the second or third time ive been under the ski since i got it a couple weeks ago and the first time ive noticed the corrosion.

I filled my ride plate holes with Rite Stuff. I filled it past level and cut it off flush with a single edge razor blade. I took a lot longer than over night for it to harden completely. I rode a few days after and it was soft enough that most of it was gone in a couple of the holes after my ride. I had to redo them.
