Its amazing were it all starts. And even if you think you want have to do it again, not true when you end up with a new or different ski that the holes haven,t been filled or you have lost them.
I love this site. To me filling the ride plate holes was the begining of a big time mod bug that I never saw coming.
And man, my pockets are empty.

I also used the JB Water weld. I did not sand it though. After I mixed the weld and inserted the weld into the hole with the nylon rope and tape, I pressed the weld in the hole, ensuring the weld was completly filling the holes, with no air. While it was still saodt, I used a plastic putty knife and started 1/2 way through the hole and scrapping out across the plate, removing the excess weld...the the same for the other 1/2. After this was done, I used my finger to smooth the weld. Way too easy, and no sanding. --jpe

Did you notice when you lost yours? Most likely at different times but I swear I felt it when I lost 1 or 2 of mine like the whole ski lifted up on one side..... that or scraped a high spot on the bottom. hmm it was low tide and I wasn't slowing down to check it out.
