    How to remove these without damaging the hull

    Hi all! I will eventually be posting a build thread of this ski but for now I'm just looking to gather some ideas on how to remove these inserts. They are epoxied down and no I have not removed any yet, I got the hull like this. Anyways, the hull is a XFT. I don't know what year (probably ~2010), apparently this is the last hull that sergio made when he owned XFT (Extreme Freestyle Technology) before selling off the molds to the person who I bought the hull from.

    My thoughts to remove the inserts was to insert a long bolt and lightly tap it to pop them out, that didn't work lol

    Epoxy is generally super strong. Your best bet is to put on a respitator, cover your skin, and carefully grind/sand away until they are free.

    You could probable take a dremel tool and cut around the inserts and get them out that way. If you don't want holes in the hull feel them back up with resin.

    and when you go to replace them use something like http://www.x-h2o.com/index.php?threa...landed.158921/

    these work really well and have a ton of "meat" for the epoxy to bite onto.
