I have been reading quite a few posts on here to learn just about everything there is to know about these skis.

Yesterday I finally built up the courage to remove the pump. HOW EASY! I'm going to try Dans method of applying epoxy to the wear ring and smooth it out until I can afford to grab an SS wear ring.

I was cutting off a crap load of excess blobs of black (silicon?) Sea-doo uses to seal the pump shoe on to the hull. Boy do they do a messy job. What do you guys use to fill these crevices that were under applied? Is it really black silicone? I wan't to make the entrance as smooth as can be.
