    Anyone ever wrap the bottom of their ski for scratch protection?

    I'm going to do a ceramic coat for the whole top of the ski, plastic parts included. (unless someone had a bad experience), but what about doing a wrap for the bottom of the ski to protect against scratches? Just a thought because I'm OCD about scratches and wanted to see if anyone has tried doing this... thanks

    Where would the wrap end?
    How would the edges be kept from raising?

    The hull bottom has the intake grate area, contours and raised strake ridges.

    The water pressure and flow are very high in some places.

    Thumbs down

    Also consider the moment a scratch (through the vinyl) were to occur below the water-line ... the water pressure from riding would simply get forced into said scratch, essentially "unwrapping" the wrap, sucked into the jet-pump - bad-day for sure. Ever hit a floating plastic bag.

    Just ride. You guys who worry about scratches are wasting your time. I feel like I'm in my Dads new car and can't put my feet on the dash. Boring
