    Ha! The hull was a little harder to crack apart this time!! But, it came out decent.
    Ill remove excess epoxy, throw in a gasket, bolt it together and trim the bondline up nice.

    You can see in this pic right where the gasket will sit on the flat. I might run 2 gaskets and put the other one on the radius.






    This pic is for Fenix169motox from post #86....

    Ride,

    Don’t mount the sponsons on the rear, mount them in the mid. Most of the top guys in ski class are mounting them mid ship right where the tubbies end. Makes more difference in terms of handling, without creating lift in the rear of the hull like they do when mounted out back. Just a suggestion.

    Interesting.
    I'll look into it. You have any pics of this you could post?

    I want to say this is just a rec ski....but we always end up racing everything at some point...so all suggestions concidered

    Re: PROJECT SXR / 900ace (thread redo)

    So, one more thing before assembly....
    I didn't like how the foot tray flexed. Normally the top and bottom halves of the hull are glued between the tray and pump housing, mine are not.
    So, I built this framework to spread the load, of me in the tray, a little better.



    Then took a heavyduty garbage bag and placed it over the framework and pump housing. Squirted a big ol' pile of polyurethane/rubber stuff on top of the plastic.
    Clamped the two hull halves together, one more time. Rubber should dry and only stick to the top hull half (under the tray). No more flex!
    In this pic you can see the rubber squeezing out, on top of the plastic.
    Also, going to do one more bracket. A lateral brace from left to right.... right above where the rubber is squishing out. This will help lateral flex, since I cant glue the top of the "firewall" (we'll call it that)



    I like the 2-tone of blue and black inside the hull. I'll probably keep it like this...

    Re: PROJECT SXR / 900ace (thread redo)

    More stuff put together tonight.
    Did the exhaust and drain plug...



    Got 99% of all the mounting brackets, trim control, heat exchanger for the closed loop cooling, and bilge stuff..auto and electric...



    Motor mounts, battery tray, and pushrod assembly for the trim...



    Shameless "Blowsion" advertisement....cant wait to get to all the billet pieces!



    In the last pic you can see I added extra tabs on the motor mount plates. I dunno??, they just make me feel better...with that heavy motor.

    Didn't get a whole lot done over the weekend.
    But I did get the pump permanently put in, water feeds attached, auto bilge attached, Solas shorty pump cone installed, and torqued the Skat.
    Waiting for Rhaas cable ends for steering and trim...Ill leave the rideplate off til then.



    We final found a decent SXR, for a decent price!.... picked it up Friday.
    Looks like Zack will be racing Sport GP and Standups this year.

    Needs a little detail luv and new Turf, but ready to go.



    He thought he was gonna get a free ride and race my SXR...I said no way, get your own! Lol
    and he did...
