I quit putting it off and am doing some glass work. The leading edge of the jetski hull sits about 1" lower than the DR hull, so I built up the forward edge by laminating some pieces cut from the donor:
Then took the belt sander to it to taper the leading edge:
I am working out an aluminum cover for the leading edge as well. Sort of a mini bash plate.

I made a template and marked the cut out in the transom for the jet to stick out. They say measure twice and cut once. Good thing I did (actually about six times) because my first attempt had the exhaust port on the wrong side.
I am now girding my loins for the actual cutting event.
I will probably measure several more times though...
