    His boat had alot of stress cracks and 120 hours use on it.
    He was riding on his ski when suddenly it dropped 500 or 600 RPM's due to a huge chunk of gelcoat flaking off

    I can see stress marks on my hull. No cracks. Should i contact my dealer?

    Yes! and do a real close inspection. if you do get any chips and knicks repair them right away, supposedly that will prevent the jell coat from coming off. My Boat actually had a crack 7 ft up from the stern right where the hull is reinvorced allowing the bow to flex and I think that is right where the problem started.
    Thanks Green Hulk for clearing up my heiroglyphics.

    Your ski looks like it had the gelcoat applied to the inside of the mold, and a layer of glass or two put down, then someone either took a lunch break or the weekend off and continued with the layup when they returned !! I would bring it to your dealer and demand a new hull. Unless you ran it up onto a concrete ramp damage such as this in not the norm.
