    2012 fzr cracked hull!!!!

    I was out on the water yesterday and I was hitting some 4-5 foot swells and ran great started back to the marina and it bogged down. I got it on the trailer and pulled the plugs. Never had water except today I had a lot. Pulled the seat off and the hull had 4 inches of water. The hull is cracked up in the intake grate area like the pump tunnel. Is there anyone in New Jersey that is good with the hull repair on these skis. I know I have to use the west system epoxy so

    you need to get the tunnel fixed and install a coco tunnel reinforcement. If you are jumping them kind of waves or go over 80 mph. i recommend the tunnel reinforcement a must do mod.

    My guess is that it has been cracked for a long time and it finally broke open from the constant flexing. The tunnel in my '12 FZR also cracked but I caught it before the hull was breached. I had a coco pump reinforcement installed with the warrantied repair. Hopefully your engine was not damaged.
