    2000 21V Rider Edition - want to fill in Spray Pockets

    Looking for any suggestions as to where to go to try and get the spray pockets filled on my 2000 21V. I have called a few places in the Bay Area and either they do not fill comfortable about such work or prices are in range of 10K. I would do it my self but so hard to find time. I was hoping someone might have a suggestion as to how to find someone that could complete this project. Thanks in advance for any input given.

    I actually spent a ton of time researching this many years ago, also going on lots of 21v boats over the years. I think the spray pockets don't affect the wave that much and I wouldn't worry about them. I actually think its a perfect spot to put a surf system. My boat (24v) has chines, that push back on the weight, I looked into removing them. If I was you, I would mimic the newer hull design, or just not worry about it.

    Unless you wakeboard?

    Thanks for the reply. We mainly surf but do some wakeboarding. My concern is without the spay pocket filled, I would not be able to mount the surf system wide enough to provide enough of a change. I am currently using adjustable preset surf gates mounted on the swim platform, but want to design and install a system. I could move forward with an automated surf gate style but was looking at the alternate tap style system where the filled spray pockets would be helpful.

    These have worked well with the installed ballast system, but do not provide easy driving while in place. Original plan was just to automate this type of system.

    These are just a few posts that still make me want to go forward with filling them. I think I will have to do it myself since I can't seem to find a place willing to do it. It is probably going to be delayed till next off season. Getting too close to active season. Will work on other projects for now. Thanks for your input. I just installed your design of the flap to help with the FAE water disturbance. Look forward to seeing how it works. Planning on using your idea of adjusting the swim platform size and shape to prevent affect on surf wave as well.
