Crazy sponson blade idea...
So as I was driving home, I saw a set of old skis sitting in someone's trash. I did not think anything of it, but about a minute later I thought "hey, those would be a nice replacement for the plastic blades on my Riva sponsons."
Long story short, I turned around and threw them in the car.
Before I get to fabricating, anyone able to think of any downside to using what appears to be a fiberglass and/or composite material that is bonded to aluminum to make the blade out of? It is around the same thickness as the riva blades. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

if memory serves me right it violates an ijaba run to run metal blades on your sponsons.

I saw plenty of aluminum blades at the WF's last year.
I use CF ones.
