    New RXP cracks

    We all have seen the cracks that appear on the bottom of the rxp hulls before. But, has anyone got or seen the cracks I have on the top front area? I noticed the 1st crack a month ago on the left of the BRP badge. It was only about 1.5 inches ling. Then another one started on the other side of the badge. Then the one in the middle came up. They are now about 2.5 - 2.75 inches long. They DO NOT go all the way to the front edge. They stop before the rubber bumper. Then I noticed the crack in the crease below the hood & it was only a straight line crack & now it's spidering up. This is all within 4 - 5 weeks. Is it just the gel coat I wonder? I did not hit anything head on as my bumper would show any impact if I did. At the rate they are growing & i'm afraid it's gonna start chipping away.

    Did that clip make youtube?
    Hehe, the cracks were there before the race. I will admit to being thrown, but the cracks were there already. Probably came from the LB2CAT originally & then grew from rough water riding. Now, the crack in the crease area might have come from the "faulty Seadoo brake system" that day.

    "They DO NOT go all the way to the front edge. They stop before the rubber bumper. Then I noticed the crack in the crease below the hood & it was only a straight line crack & now it's spidering up. This is all within 4 - 5 weeks"

    Jim, If your looking for in fo......here it is. The harder you ride(which we all saw, you don't have to prove anything) The more stress youre going to have and the RXP. Offshore riding takes a lot out of the man and machine its simple as that. I have all the cracks, if that makes you feel better You have to understand how fiberglass works Bro, it's just the way it is, Fiberglass. I bet you, it's gel coat stress marks. The way YOU, Dubz1, Pirate33 rides......there is NO wake in the ocean that is left undisturbed.......
