    Ride plate with built in skegs

    I want to add the skeg to my skis', but I would much prefer a replacement ride plat that had the skeg's cast into it. It seems like it would be cleaner than glueing them on and it would add extra surface area for cooling?

    I know they having something like this for the Kawasaki's, but has anyone seen anything for the Seadoo RXP/RXT's?

    I don't think you can get them for the 4tecs.

    Nope because they have the cooling system ran through the rideplate thus making a replacement null as it would scrub your cooling system!! ouch!

    kawasaki uses an open loop system on there boats so the ride plate does not act as a radiator.. as far as skegs go, they are more of a chine that a skeg

    Would any metal smith's be willing to cast them on there with the ski as a whole and upright???

    Is this dangerous knowing the closed loop is attached??

    I have never ordered skegs because I keep my ski on a floating dock and know it will rip them right off there...

    If you are going to weld it on do a little at a time letting it cold before tacking it again because the ride plate is casted aluminum which is very easy to burn though.

    Or you could just go open loop and mod the ride plate

    or...you could just epoxy them on since you never look at the rideplate anyhow and the "cleanliness" is just in your head. Once they're epoxied on, a littel sand paper does wonders.
