    New rxtx 300 hull

    Hi guys bought a new 17 rxtx in lava red. Took the ski home today and noticed there where 2 round prints on the bottom of the hull. Just wondering why the factory left it like that thanks guys

    could be where it rested in the crate and the dealer was slack?

    take a few photos of it for record and then try buff it out.
    if you buff it and find its too damaged to just buff off contact the dealer and tell him of the damage. how you noticed it and tried to see if it was just surface scuffing by polishing it out.

    most dealers will sort it out.
    looks too perfectly round for you to have damaged as a user or by towing

    Normal .. they all have this. It's in there from the molding process

    Thank mate I thought it was from a factory process, just wasn't sure this is my first brand new seadoo and it freaked me out for a second. Makes me feel better

    Normal. If you look close, you will probably find 4-6 more along the length of the hull. I wish they would take the time to sand them out.

    There is a whole thread about the sort of, let's say, 'rustic' finish on the 300s. Part of it has to do with the new fiberglass mix (you'll notice it seems kind of "dry" inside the hull, especially in the front), and part of it has to do with some growing pains and all around lackadaisical quality control since the move to Mexico.

    Even the 2012 px had them. They are normal. But if your refinishing it I'd sand them out.

    It's not just on the 300's. My 2010 s3 had them also as well my friends 2013 s3 and gti.

    When I was buying my 14 rxp I was looking at the hull and thought the guy had hit something but then saw it was perfectly round and figured it was a sticker or something.. always wondered what it was for

    Same, I was close to grabbing some gelcoat and "fixing" that after I picked up my ski lol till I did a search.
