    Weird thing about sponsons

    Someone has been holding out or I am just plain stupid to notice.

    I pulled the sponsons off my ski to dremel out the center hole for stepping...well, water starts coming out of the back of the sponson...no biggie, until I starting shaking it...there is water all up in the sponsons. What in the world?

    There is a little hole at the end of the sponson..presumably Japan put there to drain the hollow sponson, well it hold water and lots of it.

    No one ever told me nor have I ever noticed it before. Not sure if it affects anything but it can't be good that sponson fills up with water?

    No Pistonrash its good 2go! I focus more on speed things than wheather or not I got jb weld on my ski. You ever tried to pull that bolt out of that ball of jb weld at autozone?

    I brought home some Tremco high performance silicone sealant to fill in those hollow blocks on the back of the sponsons, weeks later mine was still dripping
