    Sealing the pump shoe:

    Here is my attempt at sealing the pump shoe on the GPR. This by far was the biggest PITA doing this on my back... after checking alignment, all is good, cleaned the sealing area`s, scuffed up the hull with 3M scotch brite pad, wiped down with acetone, inserted the sealing pieces, masked everything off, and gooked it up using 3M 5200FC in white. Decided to use longer bolts so I could toss a washer and nylok nut on the inside, just bc... I hope I never have to remove this...and hope I did it right...
    here some pics...

    EXCELLENT job using the blue tape to help keep it off the hull !

    Q: did you place a floor jack underneath to help hold it in place as the 4200/5200 cures? the weight of the ski will help hold it in place.

    that has to b one of the neatest pump shoe seal jobs I've seen !!

    Also, make sure that rubber piece is back in place when you re-install that waterbox.

    hmmm, no, I kept checking bolt torque often, and checked the hull/shoe placement with the level, looks like the required space between level and shoe at the bolt area...
