    Leo style Holeshot kit

    With the necessity of creating two kits for my brother and myself I am building a mold to produce a few of them. Since I will have a mold I figured that I would check here to see if there was any interest in a kit from members as well. If there was enough interest I may do a small run of them for sale. I will be doing my two next week, to refine technique and get the materials amounts determined. I'm estimating the pricing will be about $275 plus shipping. If you are interested you can reply here, PM me, or text or call 304-940-9884. I work a mixture of nights and days, so leave a message if I don't answer and I will get back with you ASAP. Thanks Tim Lane.

    I may be interested in one. Do you pop off the corner pieces, install the kit, drill through and then re-rivet?

    You can pop them off and rivet them back on, or grind them down flush and 5200 it in place. The bottoms of the corner bumpers and rear trim should be trimmed to take full advantage of the kit. I'm planning on trying a flat bottom piece that will be threaded to accept the through hull fitting into it as well so that the tie downs can still be used. I will experiment on that next week.

    Leo style Holeshot kit

    I'm interested for 2, but will wait to see how your testing goes.

    Why not go flush with the bottom of the rubrail so it does not need to be cut ?

    I have looked at the three hulls I have and they are all three different where the top and bottom meets. Some spots the top half comes farther down over the bottom. The variance in assembly makes it impossible to do a perfect one size fits all leaving the rub rails untrimmed. I am sure this is why Leo also recommended removing the bottom lip. You could install it leaving the lip on the bumper, but you wouldn't be taking full advantage of the kit. There was a picture on here somewhere that showed the cut. Barely noticeable from the rear. If you weren't looking for it you would never notice. I'll see if I can find them and post them up.

    Couple small inclusions to fill on the top surface, but the mold seems correct. This is the lightweight option that I wanted to try. Unfortunately the slopes surfaces liked to hold bubbles and requires a little filler and sanding to be perfect. Getting close.

    I can cut it to help out on shipping costs. Unfortunately I'm not happy with this resin, next batch will be on the way next week.
