    Spoke to the technician at west system and this was what they recommended for filling our void.
    I did. Worked flawless.

    I also used just the resin, no fiberglass and it turned out perfect...very strong.

    Got my factory plates out my GP today...trying to decide which way to go but I’m leaning more towards using the 610 epoxy

    For the initial stages of cracking, yes.

    If the cracks continue and the hull is ridden enough, eventually the intake grate visibly pulls down below the hull and/or the hull starts to leak a lot more water to the interior.

    The best fix for the GP 1800 cracker inserts. This guy does a awesome job. My ski cracked bad on Riva stage 2 doing 83. I had it fixed and the pump tunnel reinforced. If anyone is interested I can pass on his number he builds race skis and freestyle skis. He also installed all my Riva stage 3 complete kit. Click image for larger version.
