Hiya Mike
I'm using a 97 seadoo spx 800 as my donar so far fitted really well and faired in nicely from the sides .
Blue foam used to extend it down the hull which took longer to do

Thanks Matt
Been about 10 months in total so far so wouldn't say quick try and do a bit each night after work and a day each weekend but really happy with what I have achieved so far.
Weather going to change here this week give me chance to think about fitting out

Yep, you are quite a bit ahead of me in terms of progress. Ispend a lot of time staring at mine . I do get better ideas on the way it should be done that way ,its also an excuse for being lazy sometimes. Between home remodel and making everything right on the 572 ci ford idid for my brothers and mine Hallet the TNT is my respite.As for the tnt ive got the bottom screwed and glued, I didn't use as much of the ski hull as you ,just enough for a good delta pad. Yours still looks great by the way .Ill post pics when I figure out how.
