    My GPR slipped of cart

    Folks, my gpr slipped of her cart. Below is a picture of the cart. Steering nozzle and plate hit the ground. Steering nozzle broke, plate with 2 scratches. Front and middle of ski didn't hit the ground, they were on cart. I didn't see any damages on hull. qsts is working ok.
    I've bought a new steering nozzle from Riva. What else may I concern about damages? Thanks in advance.............Fernando

    +1 look for cracks and make sure the plate isn't warped out of shape this could cost you speed and some serious handling issues.

    +2 and also always remember to center the weight of the ski (engine) not the hull on the stand.

    Thanks guys. I always center the engine, but this time one tire stucked and when i pulled it, the ski slipped...
    I will take off the ride plate and look. To put plate back, is it necessary some care with screws?? Or just tight them??
    Thanks again...Fernando

    Sorry to hear this happened, hope the damage is minimal.

    It seems everytime I work on mine it gets a new scratch or something.

    I always strap the front and the back when moving the ski. I can't tell you how many times I almost lost the ski before when I did not have it tied down.
