    pump shoe repair question

    I just finished sanding my pump shoe after a few rocks broke some of the veins. I removed all of them. Can some one tell me exactly what can be used to apply to the entire shoe to make the finish like it orriginally was or is that a waste of time and not needed. I have been surfing and found a million different products but not sure what to use.

    You can try a skim coat of plastic epoxy, then sand as smooth as you can...its not gonna be like it was, but close enough...

    Funny, but I could swear I just posted something like this in another thread ... I 'painted on' a coat of West Marine Epoxy after thoroughly grinding and cleaning the pump shoe, and it still looks untouched after 50 hours of riding. That stuff amazes me ... I used it to fill in voids in my thrust nozzle (venturi) after I cut/ground out the bilge pump bumps ... it dries clear, slightly yellowish and after 50+ hours not a spec of it has moved, chipped or flaked, still totally clear and all there ... and there is huge pressure in the nozzle. So, just another option to consider.

    Vern,

    Exactly what kind of West Marine Epoxy did you use. When I go to habor freight site they list too many epoxy's. I am tempted to just not even put anything on the shoe as it probably want hold anyway< But if you can direct me to the product I might spend some more hours rubbing my ski.

    Sorry, can't get that at Harbor Freight, need to get it online or at a West Marine store near you ... they use it in boat construction, heavy duty stuff and very easy to use.
