    Check This Out

    So Jay (forum member) and I were working on my 01GPR to replace the impeller. When we pulled the driveshaft we noticed some scarring on it where it enters the hull. Then I noticed that the entry hold is really scarred and it's been rubbing on the driveshaft. This must have occurred before I got the ski last summer because i've never had anything get sucked up into the intake.

    I've posted a pic below and would like to hear a few opinions on what I should do. Would you guys recommend that I use a gelcoat repair kit and sand/smooth it out? The cylinder shaped insert (inside the hole) is a bit jacked up on the bottom portion and that's what has been rubbing on the shaft. Is that insert replaceable or should i just repair it? Seems like it'd be a bitch to replace.

    Thanks!
    Erik

    Looks like a rope got caught in there at one time.

    Get that stock intake grate off of there before someone gets hurt.

    Yeah i've already got the parts (grate, rideplate, ppk, and 13/19 solas). Before I install this stuff i'm wondering what I should do about this problem. With it scuffed the way it is now it's rubbing the driveshaft. Does anyone have any experience with this? What's the best way to fix it?

    I wouldn't worry about it. Looks nice compared to mine and it works fine.
