    95 750ss holes in hull

    I have had this ski for about 7 years with no issues. When we got it the gel coat was pealing on the hull.

    I paid $135 for it so I just painted the hull.
    Since I got it, we always used rollers mounted on 2x8's to pull it up on sure when not in use.

    I recently found two rollers when through the hull. Well, they crushed the hull by out a 1/2 on each side.

    Is it possible the hull deteriorated or did someone jump on while on the rollers?

    Not sure if I should fix the holes or swap the engine into something else.

    A lot depends on your "glassing" skills

    I can fix it. I would be too worried about how it looked. Just not sure if I should fix it.


    I do have my eye on a 650sx hull...

    If there are no tracks in the hull then it didn't happen from rolling it on and off. My guess would be somebody jumping around on it pushed the rollers into the hull.

    Seems to me like a perfect situation to give it a shot at repair. You have nothing to loose but the time it takes to try it. If the repair fails, you can go with the other hull. If it does not fail, you will have gained the experience that will be useful in the future.

    We learn by doing....
