    Anyone ever trash and totally cut up a GPR hull?

    Looking to find out if anyone has in the past discarded a GPR hull and in the process crushed it or sawzalled or chainsaw the ski into multiple pieces?

    Reason I'm asking is that I'm looking to know what is beaneath the footwells of the hull. What's inbetween that space beneath the footwells but inbetween the inner-liner and the outter hull.

    Just foam. Had to cut my inner liner to repair sponson mount. The bracket broke and pulled thru.

    Race hulls just have air there.

    excellent. Thanks for the help guys. I kind of figured it was either air or foam but thought it'd be better to see if someone has been in there in the event i need to cut it open only to find a big structural piece or something in the way

    Thanks all

    Steve, I actually used a skill saw with a wood blade on it. It was MUCH faster than a sawzall. In the center of the hull, you will have to use a sawzall because it is too think to cut the hull and liner with the skill saw.

    oh no no no... I'm not scrapping a hull. I just wanted to know what was in that void in case I need to hollow it out and seal it off to make room for parts and modification on my ski.

    Yep just foam. The hot ticket for cutting SMC is a sawzall with a tungsten carbide blade. (it has no teeth, just grit)
