Not sure why Michael Buble would be protruding from the hull, but if just a lump... it is likley caused by moisture getting into the structure and swelling the glass layers "Blister".

Google:

Wax the gelcoat. Don't leave the boat in the water or in wet soil /sand / grass for long periods.

It's summer where you live!! Wait till the season rolls around in the states. Posts explode, were all talking about our boats constantly, but we are all hibernating now! I sure wish I was down under with you guys right now.

Have a Hobie day!!

Does anybody know how I might get an AC/DC on the inside of my hull? On a more serious note, It seems that the 14 turbo I aquired late last season is so closely related to the 16 that I have not had any questions about it yet. Or maybe, I have just found all of the answers to my questions before having to post them (until now that is).
