I picked up my Pro Angler last Sunday and I noticed a couple dents on the starboard side right about where the screws are for the rudder pulley. I was going to put some pool noodle in to help push it out but cant get around pulley. Not a performance issue but looks bad on new boat. I'm thinking the dealer stored or transported on a j-rack? Hasn't been hot enough to turn on side and put plastic over. Any ideas?

Pro Anglers have very flat sides and have been known to dent, especially when stored on their sides. We placed foam blocks inside the hulls to help support this area in production starting last season. Whats the serial number? Is there not foam inside the rails? This is something that can be added.

Thanks Matt, HCCE1175 production date 7/20/2009. The foam is there behind the pulley going towards rear of boat, this is at the pulley forward of that area. If I unscrew pulley I might be able to get some foam up there then put pulley back.

Next is hot water on a towel over the area and a bit of air pressure in the hull or push out and hold the area till cool.
