    i have a hull and it used to run triple pipes so i have a big square hole on the left and a bigger then stock exhasut hole on the right heres pictures.... should i cut a piece of metal and silicone it/bolt it or should i reglass it and hope it holds up, i grinded it down to fresh glass already. but figured you guys always point me in the right direction ............. suggestions.....? theres also little assorted screw holes i figured white sililcone since there above the water line

    That part of the hull will ride out of the water, so I can't see any way it will affect performance. I'd just make darn sure it's sealed up really well. Since you can't really see it with the pump in place, if it were me, I'd use 5200 and a piece of something (aluminum sheet, whatever) to seal it up. You could get it repaired to look like stock, but I'd bet it would be expensive.

    the metal will rust away unless you use stainless steal i would put fiberglass there or better yet carbon fiber

    If it was me I would just use glass, but everyone has their own way of doing things.

    If you know how to work with glass and use epoxy resin there will be NOTHING to worry about. It will hold.

    Buy some carbon fibre and epoxy resin.

    Itll be the stongest part of your hull.

    i say block it off from the inside with 1/2 plexy glass, seal it with 5200 then overlay it with carbonfiber. then on the out side fill in the square hole with fiberglass bondo

    yup, thats what I would also.

    I have some scrap carbon fiber if you want me to ship you some. and I would use the West System Epoxy for the resin.

    lemme know, I can ship it today.
