Now, the pad bottom idea may be workable. ( Im not a glass guy or hydrodynamics engineer)

best of luck

shootitup,

Listen to the guys here. no offense but Chris Craft Stinger does not have the right layup scheme to built on. They don't even had the hull and deck glassed together.
If you MUST do this pic an old better built hull. Fountain, Cigarette, Powerplay etc.


just my 2....

That the truth!! I had a friend find out the hard way. He replaced his rubrail and when he put in the new screws they knocked off most of the wood blocks that the screws were supposed to bite into. Thats what holds the deck on. You could just push in the side and reach into the cabin!

If this deal was so simple the major manufacturers would not spend anywhere from a 1/4 to a 1/2 mil to redesign a hull.

Duct tape and Bondo are cheap, why spend real money on stupid chit like hull design? Enjoy what you have or step up and make the change, you will live longer and be more prosperous!

Rich Rigda-Total performance restoration in Saginaw Mi /american boat repair, has added steps to boats , not sure if he had any positive results but he chopped and whittled!! Tried to find a pic but could only come up with this- a 79 sutphen he restored, he was telling me he was going to move the cockpit fwd and make it bigger!!! Give the guy a call, he might send you some homeade step pics, Smitty

There is nothing MUST.

Like in starting post Have PLAN make steps to stinger 312 straight v-hull.

I wont make such big work just for look dos it work or not that
why started this thread.

Have wait that if someone has done it before write back, send
project pics and before/after results.

If those steps in after work has been a good solution i suppose someone has tell something real.

Otherwise those dont do it etc has come a lot.

I will leave making steps and look after something else like
takin more hp out of the engines.

Boat reach now 61-63mph and try to reach 70+mph.
