    Go ahead and stab a nail or something into that after a day. Itíll still be very liquid. Itís been discussed before and people have found it to be liquid even after weeks of curing. Itís just too...

    Yep thatís exactly how mine looks. Yours might even be a little more than mine. Thanks for the pic. Iím going to drop it in and see how bad of a seal job the amateur mechanic (me)...

    I swapped the plate and grate last weeekend noticed this today.

    The bottom of the grate is not perfectly flush with the bottom of the plate. Is this normal? I wish I had paid attention to this...

    I believe thatís what weíre all coming to the conclusion of. I donít think anybody has too much back to back experience between the two yet, but Iíll have my vxr on the water in a week with the 19...

    Null info until you get that candoo on [emoji6]

    Surprised how ballpark accurate yours is though. I have the same ski. Candoo read 61.7 stock and now reads 67.8. Paddle said 47 [emoji23]

    I just sprayed it with Pam (cooking spray) and put it in there best I could while curing. Then took the fingers out and when cured I cleaned up the holes and will use Ďthe right stuffí to seal any...

    I used ďamazing casting resinĒ. Any urethane casting resin will do. ďFast castĒ or ďsmooth castĒ will work fine.

    I am in this mindset.. sounds like some keyboard engineering.

    I did finally get mine. Started filling it with resin last weekend and ran out. Will finish up this weekend.

    I am debating thinning polishing my 19 when I get it to help with that.

    But Iím not sure because smooth and slippery isnít always the answer. Take golf balls for example. Turbulence is...

    You think itís significantly better than the OEM 19? Because of being SS or just the design?

    Jesus thatís heavy. Wonder why the Oem 19 is so much lighter.


    Has everyone who ordered a grate gotten it in? My ride plate came in several weeks ago but no grate. Just wondering if thereís...

    Lol Iíll do it in layers so theyíll be cured into it stufffed way down. Iíve used this method for filing other things to save weight.

    I have debated getting the R&D stuffer, but I like the idea of a perfect sealed result from using resin. I think Iíll place cheap ping pong balls in there to help keep weight and resin required down....

    Thatís an excellent point. You just convinced me to do it. Not sure if Iíll buy it or cnc my own. I thought about cncíing my own and having it have multiple position holes.

    Sorry. I meant to refer to the 2019 Yamaha and Riva style plate. I have the 2019 Yamaha plate in a box.

    Iíll probably get that extender. My only concern is that if it makes my positions go from ...

    No I meant Rivaís. What kind of coating did they use. I might coat mine yellow or something flashy to go with the yellow/gunmetal theme.

    Iím curious what more theyíd cut into it. From what Iíve seen on Jimís cut, thereís already a ďJimís cutĒ style cut in my 2019 plate.

    Maybe Jimís is deeper? Not sure.
