Default Chris Craft Stinger 222 Project

Hi,

Time to start a thread about my project here in Sweden!

The boat is a 1986 Chris Craft Stinger 222, imported by 'Mange' on this forum. This is my first boat project, and it was supposed to be a rather "light" project, since i wanted to use it this summer. But as we say; **** Happens... Mange has been really supportive during this project.

The boat turned out to bee complely rotten in the transom and stringers. So the "light" project turned into a "massive" project. But from the bright side of it, i'm going to have a one of the nicer 222 Stinger out there. I hope...

Some specs of the driveline:

Stock: Merc 260/Alpha1
Now: 2003 Chevy 350,Edelbrock Performer, Crane Cam/Alpha1

Things that will happen with the boat during the project:

*New transom -Done! 51mm thick
*New stringers -Done! Beefier supports than stock
*New paint
*New cockpit

Below are some pictures of the project:

Red gelcoat and a few layers of paint. Does someone have a suggestion on witch colour to pick for it?




Oups! Here the project changed from "light" to "massive"




No wonder why the stringers where cracked, must have flexed a bit...




Started to cut away all the bad stuff.




Me, myself and I

Starting to glass, The outer liminate is 10mm




3x12mm birch plywood with 1x300gr glass between each. Then i put some filler in all the corners to make a smooth radius for the glass mat.
