Ok guys on my 83 I am redoing there is a hole on the bottom side of the boat. I already cut out part of the sub floor from the top to get to it. Here is my question: The stringer is over the hole. Can I cut the stringer and if so how do I go glass it back together? The hole is about at the same spot as the water pick up for a point of reference.

Justin,

Check out this (http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=7289) thread. Post #63 shows where access holes are cut at the factory to inject foam in the stringers. I would think you could do the same, then inject expanding foam back in there and glass that piece back in.

I'm not a fiberglassing expert by any means but a search on the net will yield you step by step instructions I'm sure.
