    Thanks for the reply Surfrider.

    I didn't want to believe that the repairer was incompetent or negligent.

    He's probably more of an innocent victim of the whole issue since he had to cover the...

    I see your arugment and it makes sense.
    Maybe I'll bring this up with the insurance company so they can stop trying put the whole blame on these docks.

    But any proper outcome should not have to...
  3. Is this from the pictures I posted up? I have...

    Is this from the pictures I posted up?
    I have yet to hear back from the repairer as to whether epoxy or polyester was used.
    I was hoping someone could just tell from the pictures.

    So...

    Hi coldspace

    Thanks for your input. I live on the Gold Coast but I'm not sure naming the dealer is the proper thing to do.
    I have no intention of detrimentally affecting someone's reputation,...

    Yeh, the pictures of the original damage is in my old laptop.
    The damage was not bad. It resembeled a deep scratch running down from the bottom of the tow hook for about 10 inches. and few chips...
  6. So, unless the exact same process for the...

    So, unless the exact same process for the creation of these NanoXcel are used any additional materials [repair] on the original material will be relatively inherently weaker?

    Oh man, this is...
  7. That's the repaired layer. Only the newly...

    That's the repaired layer.
    Only the newly patched surface gets scratched and detached from the hull.
    The rest of the hull is fine.

    All post-repair damages have occurred while the ski was being...

    Gold Coast, Australia.

    The insurance company is unlikely to pay-out for the ski.
    The ski is insured for $20K (not much different to US$) and as long as the replacement hull (plus labour and...

    This is the exact factual account of why the new tow ring was not attached.
    I'm keeping it factual so that there's no risk of flaming the dealer. (since truth is defence for defamation)...

    - The...

    Already enquired. Just waiting for a response.
    I was interested in whether the nature of the repair is possible to know from looking at the photos.
    It would be nice knowing the answer quickly......
  11. Hi Mike. Thanks for chiming in. Can I ask...

    Hi Mike.
    Thanks for chiming in.

    Can I ask whether the repaired part of your ski ever contact the ground?
    whether it be on a floating dock or a beach?

    I'm confident that my ski would have...
  12. Thanks for the advice. To be honest, it actually...

    Thanks for the advice.
    To be honest, it actually looks worse than it is. The inner NanoXcel layer underneath the 'repair patch' is still intact.
    The damage occurs when the ski is being docked or...
  13. Maybe someone can confirm that the repair was...

    Maybe someone can confirm that the repair was done with fiberglass polyester resin from the photos? Is this possible to conclude from just the photos?

    The crack towards the bottom of the hull...

    I use Superior Jetties.
    They are actually one of the more robust and higher-durability ones on the market at the moment.
    I'm 100% sure (in my opinion) that the floating docks are not the cause of...
  15. Yoyamma I know what you mean. I have...

    Yoyamma
    I know what you mean.

    I have communicated serious intent of litigation.
    If all else fails this is what I'll do.

    So far the insurance company has:
    1. Shifted the blame onto the dealer...

    Ok, I understand. Since NanoXcel is essentially a derivative of SMC, the normal repairs involved for traditional fibreglass do not work...

    I have read that the SMC is a combination of different...

    I've just sent him a PM...

    Hopefully he can provide me with some technical advice that I can forward to the next repairer...:-?

    Thanks for steering me to the right direction.:smt023
    I really...

    Is this a generalisation? Or actually true for the NanoXcel hull as well?
    I'm sure you meant in the context of NanoXcel hulls but I want to be sure...
  19. SurfRider mentioned that the wax is actually...

    SurfRider mentioned that the wax is actually throughout the Nano material itself, as opposing to being on the surface... Is there a trick in removing all the waxs and oils from the particular...
  20. Do you (or your friend) have any detailed...

    Do you (or your friend) have any detailed information (or perhaps even steer me in the proper direction) so that I can provide the repairer with all necessary information?
    I'm fairly sure (99.99%)...

    Does anyone else dock their NanoXcels on floating pontoons?
    I didn't have problems with the floating dock before the original collision but the insurance company wants to argue that the pontoon...
  22. Really? If there is a particular repair...

    Really?

    If there is a particular repair material appropriate for the NanoXcels, it might make much better sense.
    I have a new Seadoo parked right next to it and it is fine. I'm not sure, but I'm...
  23. HELP! FZR hull cracked - already repaired twice - cracking for the third time!

    Hi all

    I have a FZR newly bought last year.
    The story is that I've collided the front sections of the hull with a partly submerged debris (no idea what it was, but it was from the pervious storm...

    What[!]
    Is it a safety/protection thing? I did find small strand of seaweed back there!
    Also I did notice that my exhaust did get louder there.
