    hull reinforcement kit seems too small

    We were trying to use the material supplied in the kit and we aren't able to stretch the material enough to go over the pump. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Did you buy the R&d kit? If you did you will have to custom fit by trimming the kevlar tunnel to make it fit tight. Wants you get it fitted then seal your pump shoe and use it to draw the tunnel down until it dries. You should of had plenty of material.

    It will fit, but it's not pretty getting it on. You will have to use a mallet or hammer.

    Be sure to prep the tunnel with the glue /ect....and have the carvings all done to clear the hoses and cables that are near the tunnel.

    I bought the kit from Carl, so I would imagine it is the R&D kit. I'll keep trying. Thanks for the help.

    It will fit like a glove. It is hitting the glue that is squeezed out all around the tunnel from when they built the ski. Grind that old glue down flat and then the reinforcement will drop right in. Then mark all the hoses and take it out and trim it to fit. I wouldn't hammer on it, you don't want to crack it even though I'm not sure you could hurt it. This baby is strong!
