    Truing hull...

    Almost ready to turn it over. A little more filling, sanding, and polishing and I can finally start assembling. The hull will be slippery.

    I'll have more details and pics next weekend.

    For those who have asked about the ride plate modification, please let me check a couple more things and I will get back with you. I gained a lot with the one I installed on the couch... I want to make sure it wasn't a fluke.


    Oops, wrong place. Can a mod help out and move this to "Seadoo 4-Tec Performance"... sorry.

    When you trued the hull did you take it down to fiberglass and re-gelcoat. Or were you able to knock down the high spots without going into the fiberglass? It look really good!!

    Yeah screw the ski, I want more pics of the garage and the parts inventory that is available. For a man that rides couches what's up with the 2 seater racing seat cowls?

    This hull had some damage that was already through the gelcoat.
    But, damaged spots aside, the highs and lows became quite evident and caused several spots that went through to the fiberglass. This hull has been repainted with 3 coats of "two-part" polyurethane. It will be finished with off with 600 grit wet sanding.

    The only reason it is clean and organized is I had to wait for "stuff" to cure.

    Some of those are future "light weight" hoods for my 3-seaters.
    The RXX hood is for the 2-seater hull you see in this thread (dubbed the RXXP). The custom (butchered) 3-seater creation (I call it a GTX-X) is behind the shop... it should be flipped over and in the shop by Christmas.

    As for the RXP seat cowlings... I've got something special planned for those.

    Jeff, did you take the hook out of the back of the ski?? I know Danny did that this year and ended up putting it back in..

    Scott, I left the hook intact. Take a look at the RE block-off and you can see just how much hook is in an RXP. That block-off is in-line with the portion of the hull that doesn't hook.

    I did however, knife edge the transom and fill in the speedometer grooves on both sides. I maintained the mounting block for the speedo sensor because it also houses the H2O temp sensor.
