Any signs of fatigue on these GPR hulls with all the weight and power you guys are throwing at it?

Thought about reinforcing the hull?

Must say that Jerry's boat was very impressive and seemed very stable at all speeds. Like it was made for that kind of power.

No idea. I've never looked underneath except to change the grate. Nothing inside the hull is changing. Joe has put some hard time on his. He would be the prime person for this question.

Since returning from mudbug my ski has seen a weekly 2 hours of closed course riding and another 2 hours of rough rec riding. The ski is getting your basic dings and scratches and the cheapo yamaha pump stator section sucks due to the fin being burned up in short order. The inner hull cuts are fine.No stress cracks. the intermediate bearing and support are perfect. The pump tunnel shows no signs of cracking. All in All the Hull motor combo gets two thumbs up.

Bringing this back to the top, I'd say the gprxp hull is about as bulletproof as any gpr.
