    I do t mind finishing of the ski it’s my old body that ain’t what it used to be
    i was told by performance fiberglass that they will be using a. Egged paint the. Yamaha although don’t remember what they are using. They also commented on the inferior Yamaha paint . These guys know what they are doing. Making sure every step of the process has a a chance to cure properly etc.

    I would hate that it happened but it really doesn't look that bad and knowing its repaired well with a good paint i'd give her the ole knock test and ride on. no one will ever know it was repaired. 'cept of course all the folks online here. LOL it'd be real hard to replicate that price paid for it.

    Was thinking about reinforcing my 18 gp18 intake grate mounts before they actually start damaging. Was actually thinking of contacting this shop Performance fiberglass for the repair. Wondering if any of you guys used them for that repair?

    What part of the world are you located in?

    The reinforcement (not a repair, unless your hull is already cracked) for the GP1800 intake grate rear bolt hull inserts is fairly straightforward. The key is to ensure the reinforced hull inserts are still aligned with the bolt holes and parallel/flat with the outside hull surface.

    And use the larger Yamaha insert/brackets rather than the stock GP1800, well supported by the freshly reinforced epoxy reinforcement layer.

    There have been several threads listed showing how-to steps and before/after photos, including the reinforcements posts I did in 2017.

    Any competent hull repair shop should be able to to the work. They just need to know the hull is NOT fiberglass and not quite the same as traditional SMC. Yamaha GP1800 hull is NanoXcel 2 material, which has specific requirements for the fiberglass material and the epoxy.

    Like ive said for full disclosure before the performance fiberglass owner is one of my good buddies but he's been the go-to for Yamaha nano repairs since the beginning. I believe berts mega mall uses them exclusively along with tons of other shops and insurance companies down there in that so-cal area..... they definitely do jobs of all sizes too so im sure they'll do it

    Thanks for the quick responses guys. Located right out of Los Angeles. I am mechanicallyinclined but never touched fiberglass before. I did see your post about the fix @k447. Going to get a quote from the shop and price the parts. See if i want to tackle it myself..

    Well, you may prefer my method using a 3/8 aluminum spacer plate rather than trying to level the top surface of a built up wad of hardened epoxy resin.

    Measure, cut and file/trim the aluminum spacers to shape, they just nicely drop into the cut-out hollows in the hull liner. Once they are set in place, mark the spacer plates via the hull holes from the bottom. Remove the spacers and drill holes to just clear the shoulders on the new spacer plates.

    Then mix up some epoxy (I used West Marine System). Put a thin layer all around the bottom area of the two hull liner pockets, then set the spacer plates into place. Another bead of epoxy if needed around the spacer edges to fill any gaps to the hull liner.

    I added enough West System chopped glass fiber powder to stiffen up the epoxy (peanut butter consistency, almost), then mounded it upon the hull liner where the new longer hull insert plates ends would extend. Then place the inserts, and reinstall the intake grate from below. Make sure the bolts are all centered in the hull holes and snug them up.

    The installed bolts help ensure the insert is correctly aligned with the grate. This may be the only ‘tricky’ part, ensuring that the newly epoxied hull inserts are indeed well aligned with the hull bolt holes and the intake grate holes.

    Let the epoxy harden, and the project is essentially done.
