    Re: 650sx conversion ski fixed steering

    No updates yet ,frankly I have been too busy to work on it,as strange as it may sound I have been wrapped up pretty tight,I need to get some more pour foam and epoxy resin and I will start working on the new hood within the next month or so,right now trying to get some steering systems and footholds built for Daytona.

    Re: 650sx conversion ski fixed steering

    So your using an X-2 steering stem? I thought the steering arm stuck out the wrong side? How did you fix that?

    Re: 650sx conversion ski fixed steering

    The foam came in yesterday so I foamed the areas in the hood in,I was looking for a way to add some foam back to the ski since I removed the gunwales,as you can see there are two large areas built into the hood,those are foamed now and I will add some foam to the top of the hood today to build it up some,then I glass it all up.My hope is that this will be enough floatation to make the ski right itself if it happens to end up upside down again.I will be testing it to find out for sure,if you look closely at the first pic you will see the cat underneath the hood ,he thinks the hood is a playhouse.

    Re: 650sx conversion ski fixed steering

    Foamed in the front and then I glassed it over,I also foamed the hood to match up to it,I will be glassing the hood today and doing some more cutting and glassing on other areas as well.There will be a lot more work going into the front nose area of this boat but the front lip will not be going back on.
