    Damaged hull 2020 sea doo 270

    I just got this 2020 sea doo and it has hull damage
    I need advice of some experts who have fixed this type of polytec gen 2 hulls.

    What is the best coarse to fix this properly?
    Do I have to take out the top deck and the front end so the hull can be accessed from the inside ? Or so I have to take out the engine and the hull all together?

    You sure that's Polytec and not CMtec? The Spark hull is Polytec (plastic), and that's not broken like plastic. The CMtec is very similar to the older SMC with the exception of the outer color layer being acrylic molded right onto the SMC. Repair it with epoxy resin and glass cloth and finish it with paint.

    Well, that's what I read online but I could be wrong. This is a GTX 270.
    One ship says let's weld the plastic together and another says let's fix it with carbon fiber

    Ok thank you
    So it seems that the GTX s are all fiberglass hull and the other models are polytec
    Does anyone know if I can just take the top deck off and the front end and that way we can access inside of the hull ?
    They need to access it from the inside but all the damage is in the front end. I want to avoided removing the engine

    The bottom hull half is multilayered. The bottom, then an inner shell. I suppose one could cut out enough inner structure up front to access the backside of the outer hull bottom. Then place the part you cut out back in last with epoxy. But, trying to accomplish that through the front hatch opening will be a different story all together. That could potentially be repaired completely from the outside with some "out-of-the-box" thinking. Such as....stainless strapping screwed or riveted across the damage to hold everything in shape....pour in 2 part foam to fill the voids....trim the foam back a bit beyond flush.....then glass cloth and epoxy resin in layers to rebuild the surface. If I bought that thing cheap at an auction to keep for myself, that's how I'd do it.

    Well I don't need to access the lower hull. The damage seems to be only in the front. So I want to try to take the top deck off and see if it can just be accessed that way.
