    Retrofit for pump shoe through hull inserts. 2000 XL1200 LTD.

    Wanted to seal my pump shoe and it turned into a project. Not too bad since itís stored for the winter and it just took a few hours at a time on weekends. Thought this might help someone.
    I had to remove the factory epoxy that held in the brass inserts. Working at weird angles and stretching my upper body to fit in the tight space was not easy. For those who ever worked on anything in the hull you know what I mean. I used a heat gun to soften up it up enough to pop it off with a old wood chisel. I found the brackets for newer wave runners fit the hole spread so it made reinstalling the thread inserts that much easier. Cleaned up the area and used 5200 to hold down the brackets. Then used JB Weld marine epoxy to give the bracket a extra dose of hold down power. Probably didnít need it since the 5200 is plenty strong. I was a cheap ass on the pump seal. Used silicone as you can see in the photos. I donít see how it will fail since I let the layers properly dry. The thickness is about 2Ē in the larger pockets of the pump shoe. Silicone hardened up nicely and I donít see how it will ever come out. Checkout the photos and if anyone has any comments or questions, please reply. This was a successful retrofit and canít wait for next season.
