    Toasted Spark

    1st ride by newbie and bam. Many may say he will learn or worse but I would have thought with the hype re the hull strength that this would have held up a little better.
    Looks egg shell thin eh. Everything will break but this is now looking at repair costs over half it's value.

    That is thinner than I woulda guessed. Makes me rethink wanting one, however, knowing what was hit and the speed of impact would help greatly before just making the assumption that integrity of hull is questionable.

    It does look mighty thin how thick is it can you measure it ??\

    What did you hit ??

    Why not just fiber glass it from the inside

    Well depending on how smart the newbi was, there is a chance of water ingestion into the engine.

    Is that the bottom of the hull?

    It looks like the forward port side. Must have been a heck of a knock on that side.
