Well so much for a solid transom. The transom is gone where the stringers attached as there was no isolation glass between the two. I have it about 80% removed. I have a few questions as I continue...

I've got the forward stringers and bulkheads coated with resin and sanded down to install. I bonded the bulkhead between the engine compartment and the fuel tank in place. The engine stringers will...

Madbouyz,

Thanks for your input. I have done most of this. The stringers are angle cut to sit flush with the hull and I re-configured the drain holes so they actually move water out of the...

Setting new stringers

I am at the point where I am ready to start setting my new stringers and bulkheads. Is the proper method to set the raw stringers to the hull with bonding putty and then glass them in with 3 layers...

Dave,
Thanks for the tips. Looks like each of these companies offer a 26lb. panel in 3/4". Besides a little more cost for the material, I don't see a reason not to rebuild with composite panels. ...

Phragle, That reputation is well deserved. With all the exposed wood in the hulls and poor water drainage in the bilge, these boats had to be wet after a very short time.
