    Kawasaki STX 1100 Leaking Hull

    Picked this Ski up pretty cheap ran good , noticed he installed water pump in it ? he said it leaked I new it had a gaping crack on bottom of expansion chamber (he was riding it like this wow) So I pick up a used chamber from texas Knowing It never froze. install it and take it for A ride ran good get back to ramp Boom there goes the pump coming on like a fires hose out the back!

    the Drive shaft housing factory epoxy had came apart

    here is some picks of the repair I wasn't going for cosmetic looks because you cant see it and I was selling it.

    After cleaning the Hull and housing,I Epoxied the Housing back down ..Really Think it would of been strong enough , But I glassed it with a about 5 Layers then a layer of Resin Epoxy Powder.

    Like I said I wasn't going for looks sense its covered up and also I Mixed the resin to hot and didn't have enough time to work with it , So I was rushing to get it done before it setup.

    Yeah I ran into a few others that have same problem trying to come uo with a faster easier solution . maybe just cleaning out the area of oil etc and filling it all with epoxy , instead of doing it the way I did labor intesive.
