    Angry Look at this pump shoe DISASTER.

    Out this past weekend I noticed my speeds were down from right at 70 mph to 63.5 and turning over 100 less RPM. Got back to the lift and noticed the shoe was hanging down a bit, and I mean just a smidge. I have already fixed this same problem once. Got it apart and this is what I find.

    I had fixed the insert on the right about 6 months ago, but it came out again along with the one on the left side.

    I used a Dremel tool to clean up the area and used Marine-Tex to fix it. I guess thats not going to work.

    I ordered the brackets from the 04 GPR to fix it this time.

    Couple questions though:

    Will I have to remove that goop stuff that the factory poured over the original inserts, or are the inserts on the brackets long enough to reach down?

    Also, I guess I am going to have to rip the remaining front inserts out to put these brackets in. Any ideas of the best way to take these out?

    Any other tips to getting this fixed the best way possible would be great.

    Why not try instead of using the yamaha thingies try fixing the fiberglass then try bolting all the way threw the hull using longer bolts and large flat washers on the inside. I would hate to see what it looks like then

    What does that mean??

    But yes, I have tossed around the idea of doing the bolt/washer thing. This would prevent me from ripping the other good inserts out and should do the job.

    "I would hate to see what it looks like then"

    What I ment by that is if you used a large washer the hole would be huge if it did it again. I didn't mean anything bad by it sorry if you took it that way.

    Oh no no I didn't take it in a negative way, just wasn't sure what you mean't. But yeah, my ski would sink if it ripped a hole that big. I would be very surprised if it pulled that out, what do you think?

    I will never understand why Yamaha designed the inserts this way, insane. There is NOTHING to keep them from coming out excpet 1/4 of an inch of fiberglass.

    I sure wish mine were just stripped. Maybe you could try the bold and washer deal too.

    Don't fix that problem putting those old brass fitting in you need after market 1 piece pumpshoe inserts I know you can get the 06 inserts for the ride plate and they are a whole lot cheaper then r&d I am not sure about the pumpshoe But I think the 06 inserts are 1 piece and will work. You need to fill those cracks real good I use a product from gm called automix 8115 this stuff is awsome never have anymore problems. But you need to have the product you use go from inside running outside of the pumpshoe hole then put the 1 piece insert down then thread a bolt up inside the insert so your threads stay clen and it holds the inserts in place for a little while after about an hour I pull the bolts out and run them in and out of the threads to get them nice and clean
