    How to Install Leo's Holeshot Kit w/pics

    I am finally finishing the last few hull mods and one of those projects is Leo's Holeshot kit. Leo is a good guy, answered all my questions... He followed up not only with the delivery, but with several calls asking if I had questions.

    On to the install. I received the well packaged kit a few days after Leo shipped it. It then sat on the top of my ski for over a month. The kit was 2 pieces which I dry fit to the bottom of my ski. My ski was previously flipped to do some truing. Here is a pic of the ski and dry fit. As you can see, at this time, I clamped down the kit to put masking tape over the hull where I didn't want 3M 5200.

    The next step was to put the masking tape where I didn't want any excess 5200 to stick to the hull. Note that I put a board across the bottom of the hull and on the sides to keep the clamps from scratching and to add more leverage. I found it worked best when you lay the side boards across the board in the back.

    Next, I pulled the kit off and sanded the pieces and inside the hull with 80 grit sandpaper. When you do this to the kit, it will get scratched and gray in color. Use the sandpaper as a guide where not to sand. Clean up the kit and sanded hull with acetone and tack cloth.

    Next, put boat loads of 5200 on the sides, bottom and everywhere else you can think of on the area taped off. Clamp everything down. I went with 5 clamps, then switched to 7... 3 on each side and one holding the middle. I also drilled 5 holes through the rubrail and hull into the holeshot kit and screwed in 1 1/2 inch stainless steels crews. You need to drill pilot holes to prevent cracking of the holeshot kit. Note the screw in the rub rail.

    After clamping, let it dry. I would suggest for a few days.. 3 or 4. I will post the next steps when I get to them.

    Also, here is a pic of the hull area sanded and taped.

    Install con't

    After trueing my hull and repairing a few gouges, I painted the bottom of my hull with Interlux VC Offshore. I painted the Holeshot kit as well. Here is a pic of the painted kit installed. I Noticed their were gaps where the holeshot kit doesn't quite fill so I filled the gaps with 5200. I will post more pics tomorrow.
