    Nice johanssen, thanks for posting and participating with photos. I like your work.

    Can you do a little write up with details on what you've done here by starting a new thread? That would be very kind!!

    Cracks in the Hull or Cracks in the Gel Coat? Every ski i have ever owned eventually gets some "spider cracks" in the Gel Coat. But the Hull would be a different story . . .

    Thanks for the reply Johanssen... How many hulls have cracked that you know of ?? looks like you reinforced the pump tunnel with carbon fiber, similar to where the GPR's crack, is that were your seeing all the cracking.
