    Hull Damege:

    Hey Guys,

    Sad story but true, Ski is 1 month old ( 06 RXP ) and my buddy did not have his dock in this weekend, we were supposed to do it, hoever he was " too cold " to get outside and help me put it in, so I made an anchor out of some large rocks.
    and it held quite well until I guess the middle of the night, when the friction of the waves keps the rope frome sliding agaist the rock and eventually frizzed out the rope and let go and of course she drifted away, about 8 cottages down.

    However through the night I guess it rubed agaist many rocks, lots of scratches, at the back by the prop, you can see right down to the bottom of the fiberglass. There are also some marks along the side moulding.

    What ways would you go abouts to recomending to fix this. Will take some pics and post them.

    Sorry to hear that. My first trip out I beached it on top of a rock and gouged the hull pretty badly, down to the fiberglass. the gouge was about .75 inches by 1.5 inches but fortunately it didn't damage the fiberglass, just the gel coat.

    I used a product called Marine-Tex to fix it.

    The only thing is it comes in white or grey so you will need to do a little touch up painting when it's done.
