Hi there
I managed to track down 2 suppliers for hull protectors.
One supplier does a carbon fiber type protector that gets glued on, and the other guys supply a rubber type protector that also gets glued on.

Does anyone have experience in this?
I heard of one guy that says it influences the handling?

Hello.I had a rubber hull protector fitted to my ski at at Sante Racing in JHB at a cost of R5k.Handling is still fine,the only negative I find is that I can no longer travel very far up the beach when beaching.The rubber seems to have a high friction with the sand and you can feel it dig in when beaching.If I could do it over,I would go for the stainless one,at 40% of the price,and I am sure the stainless steel also glides over the sand better with less friction.

:?

thats a very interesting statement. im due for a hull protector but being in Moz and the very high prices for these items im thinking of rather just doing a gelcoat topping and keep re applying it as it wears off over time.

anyone else done this?

Malboer

Hi Malboer,I think that a gelcoat toping could also be the answer,only you might find that you will be replacing the gelcoat on quite a regular basis.Or maybe you can import a keelstrip from Racetech and fit it yourself.Lots of people coming across the border with jetskis.I am sure you could make a plan with someone to deliver you the part.On a different note,do you have any plans of going back to Mili?

Hi Tam

Yep fishing started a bit slow for us this year as we have been busy on the farm. But will be there next weekend with only the kayaks and then between me and the old man we will have a tree week stay there during April. you are welcome to come and fall in.

easy to get things here trough the border with fishing buddies from Durbs.

Regards
Malboer
