    Pump shoe Hull grinding

    Hi all,

    I was getting ready to install my PPK and noticed that my shoe is hanging down just a little bit. How and what are you all using to grind you hulls in that area? What way gets the best results? I want to make sure that my shoe fits right before I install my PPK, I don't want to have to take it off again.

    Thanks everyone,
    Steve

    So,
    maybe you have a shoe insert pulling out then. I'd inspect it, and see if they are low on one side, both sides, etc... Look inside the ski behind the battery box, down at the pump shoe inserts. Is the epoxy cracked? Did you just have a repair done?

    That would be the type of things I would look at.

    Hanging down below the hull? Or is the front higher than the back of the shoe, but still above the hull?

    No,
    I took a straight edge and put it up against the shoe and the hull...it was down just a hair. I checked all my Pump plugs and made sure that they sat just a little lower then where they are inserted in the shoe. I was thinking about grinding down my pump shoe it's self...but, figure it maybe a little easier to take that little bit off the hull.
