    Remove the sponsons by unscrewing the torx screws. Once removed notice the brass inserts in the hull and remove old silicone. Tighten the insert nuts inside hull. Notice the shape and position of inserts and where it fits into the sponsons. Place silicone, ie: The Right Stuff, around each of the inserts. Run a bead of silicone around the sponson then reinstall.
