    pump shoe

    has any one ever filled there pump shoe with any thing but the stuffer kits.While i got the pump shoe out i was thinking about filling it with expander foam and then maybe sealing it with sicaflex.
    any ideas?

    i would put the stuffer kit in only,do the job once and be in the knowledge its not coming out and move to the next job..
    a few have done it with alternatives but i would not take the chance for $60 stuffer kit

    the stuffer kit is silicone, and two tubes of marine silicone is less than 10 bucs.

    Important thing is while the shoe is out, fill the holes.
    The stuffer kit is easiest, but if you use that, be sure to sand and fit so your shoe doesnt hang too low... marine silicone will work I am sure, bondo or jbweld for completely seemless fit ( something sandable)


    the fitting of shoe is most important part over what you fill hole voids with. Do searches on how to properly seal shoe and install, and I am sure you will be happy with results

    Thanks to all for your help.you have all given me a very good idea in what i should do especially the fitting of the pump shoe.By the sounds of things the pump shoe plays a very important roll in how the ski behaves.i wil put extra care in refiting and sealing.
    What kind of sicaflex do you all use for sealing these things up?
