1983 was the first year of composite stringers IIRC

1983. Got an original 1983 MC ad showing a cutaway hull with foam and "no wood in hull to deteriorate" per the copy.

It was part way through '83 model year. Some of the early '83s still used wood.

the new coffee table book also says 1983. See it was good for something!

That's right, there was nothing about the 'Swimsuit Thread' in it, so....................:confused:
