Yo Paintman, check out my latest build I just posted. I seal everything with 3M 5200 and stainless screws then come back over it with fiberglass and bondo for smoothing.

I also used fiberglass filler for smoothing. I recommend epoxy resin for the fiberglass filler. Polyester can absorb water & has less adhesion to boot.

What happens when you nail a rock with the Bondo?

The bondo is very small amounts, basically when the glass is laid it still creates and uneven surface so after sanding you still have high and low spots, that's where the bondo comes in. Its not large amounts to fill up huge holes. It's a given if a person smacks a huge rock, no matter whats under there on the hull, it stands the possibility of doing damage. I personally try to stay away from the rocks...lol.

Great job!

Transition panel should work good to avoid cavitation.

So are the pump housings on those jet skis composite with a metal wear sleeve in them?
