    No need to be worried about, just keep an eye on it, inspect it every now and then. The tunnel in your ski is more robust than the 2008 tunnel.

    I am about to start this project over the next couple weeks. Not really looking forward to it. Also doing a bilge pump at the same time. I love doing repairs that shouldn't even be necessary on a few year old ski lol.

    Done. I did this over last weekend. Very easy to do, and I have never messed with fiberglass before. I used the West System 105/205. The glass laid down great. I watched the RXT-X pump tunnel reinforcement video on youtube and pretty much followed it 100%.









    It looks a little wavy and rough, but that's how the tunnel looked to begin with. The glass I laid down looks 100x better lol.
