Plastic problems with an M3?

So, has anyone been having problems with the plastic being too flexiable on the m3? I have had mine about 3 weeks and twice so far have folded in the front. Once I was in the boat on LSB and just tagged rock(enough that I knew it was hard, but not too hard, and there was no drop involved). Second time was after my skirt blew on clear creek of the ark, and it went solo for about 1/4 mile, so I don't know how hard it hit then. I also pulled an m3 out of the numbers today from an unknown source, and it had the same damage. Is everyone else having these problems, and is pyrahna doing anything about them? Can you get a nose cone or make one for the front of the boat?

Thanks much.

Hey mine has been bomber, I even pitoned pretty badly one day on the big south with minor evidence of impact.

I know there was a first round of boats that had weaker plastic, some cracked on the edges, I would call pyranha.
