    Very BAD day with the RXP Delaminated hull

    Very bad day hull delamination while on the water over 50 percent of the gelcoat is gone! RXP took a nose dive and almost went over the handle bars. Been riding for almost 8 years and never seen this before. Take a look. The question is, Is this repairable or does this mean new hull

    Damn, that f%$#@^&n sucks bad. Is that caused by beaching? Maybey a bodyshop can reapply the paint and gel coat.

    that is what i was like when i got of the ski and felt underneath there when i was in the water. You would know if you hit something, I didn't even feel a bump. Then the ski wanted to pull to the side and had to hold it the other way just to keep going straight... scared the sh*t out of me... there are many sandbars where we are so yes they get beached we usually cut off way early before hitting shore and always swim them out to start them up.

    This isnt from beaching. This is caused by the hull flexing and spider web cracks form, the water gets between the hull and gell coat and this is the result. If you have any chips or cracks on the bottom of your rxp fix them fast!

    I thought I was taking in water. I couldn't go past 35 and the ski was throwing water everywhich way and it looked lower in the water. I thought I was going to be a submarine. That gel coat peeled of like someone took a cheese slicer on it

    Can anyone offer me any suggestions please. this is already going to be a costly repair. But as far as i know the engine compartment is dry. no holes. Repair vs. Replace you guys tell me.

    * Was there any signs or indications prior to this such as stress lines or anything ?

    * How often does this happen?

    * Is this common?


    Glad you didn't get pitched and get hurt !

    I might have seen a small chip closer the front maybe the size of a quarter from before. Really did not think much of it.

    As far as any spider cracks or craze lines, i did not see any.

    Could a small quarter size chip in the gelcoat rip a huge friggin the hole the size of texas under the hull?

    I've just never seen this before.

    thanks adam for the concern. I'm all in one piece that is the good part, just a little shaken up. Right now it's probably just about money which is the hard part.
