We changed these Stellings recently , due to constant cracking at the exhaust flanges even with braces that isn't sshown in this picture .I think the difference in the expansion rates between the inner and outer walls were the culprit .

It can be ugly, faded, etc.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Kurt
Ugly , faded , etc could mean death , destruction ,etc at 90+ mph!

Biggus I have a 26ft LS Scarab thats been stripped and im
going thru everything now, It is the 4th boat out of the 26
mold and was running in the High 80s a few years ago.
It is a superlite layup all the trick stuff in its time.
It was the feature boat on a Baywatch 1st season show
called the BIG RACE, It won
