fiberglass repair on a pro 785
Hello, I have a 2000 pro785 that last memorial day I got in a fight with some rocks and lost big time. The rocks I hit peeled like a potato peeler the buttom of my sled, it completely scraped of the two buttom sponson type looking " V's " on the bottom. I noticed that it looks like theses performance fin type things are made up of some sort of foam or putty of some sort, but there not fiberglass at least not that I can tell. Any help with the repair of my beloved watercraft would be great thank you in advance, Mike from Michigan

According to the service manual, the model year 2000 Pro785 hull bottom material is FRC = Fiberglass Reinforced Composite
Top material is RTM = Resin Transfer Molding

Although this is not my ski, I'm posting a few pics for Mike. I can also tell you that the damage is down to the fiberglass and that the gell coat and chines (?) were scaped off cleanly. Fortunately, there appears to be no signifficant structual damage.
Thank you from Mike for your help.

Holy crap, it pulled the strakes off!!! That is NOT good. Those are very, very important to get perfect.
