    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:

    How it looked like before....




    Really Hot! ...err..NOT

    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
