New Video: Repairing a Sea-Doo Polytec Hull
Bombardier Recreational Products, or BRP, has introduced several Sea-Doo personal watercraft with a new hull material they call “Polytec”. Polytec is a glass fiber reinforced polypropylene material that is much lighter than the typical fiberglass or SMC that is used to make watercraft hulls. The lighter hull material allows for easier trailering and great performance using a smaller engine. Sea-Doo has expanded the use of this material across its line to include SPARK, WAKE, GTR, and GTI models, and likely more in the future. If the Sea-Doo hull is black and the upper and lower parts are bolted together, it’s likely that the hull is made of Polytec.
Sea-Doo’s Polytec material is tough thanks to the glass fibers embedded in the polypropylene material, but it is not indestructible. The hull can be cracked and broken if struck with sufficient force. Needless to say, replacing a cracked hull can be an expensive proposition. But with Polyvance’s products and techniques, you can make quality repairs that will save you thousands of dollars.
