View Full Version : new floor needed

07-21-2008, 08:38 PM
OK guys, gonna start replacing the floor in my 83s/s. Can one of you guys send me some pics and some quick advice that have done this before. I'll be leaving motor and tranny in the boat. Need to remove seats then cut into floor. I'd like to know how deep to set the blade and that sorta stuff. Thanks in advance.

Some 83's had wood stringers some had fibergalss.
Which is yours?

Never mind, you said it was fibergalss here (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=23489).

I'd say set the blade shallow (1/8" ?) at first and take a few practice cuts where it is safe. Then adjust as needed.

Easy for me to say, not my boat to screwup on......
be careful
