I have never posted before, but wanted to post some pics of my current project. I just got it all torn apart and started cutting new stringers. What a pain in the neck. Has anybody tackled a project like this before and have any advice? Thanks, Jon

What did you do to clean up the fiberglass inside of the hull? I always thought about taking on one of these older ones as a project.

That looks like regular wood for the stringers? Do you treat the wood with anything to help prevent it from rotting?

Neat project. Keep us up to date!

I did a 79 just like what you are doing. You have the hard part done. Well, except for that it's getting warm and you dont have a floor. Just be sure get them fiberglassed well. That is where your waterproofing and strength comes in.

I am having a hard time matching the bottom angle cut of the stringer to the changing angle of the hull. I think it will just take some time. Jeremy79 how close did you get yours to match? I am going to treat the wood with something to help waterproof it and then totally encapsulate them in fiberglass. From what I have read epoxy resin seems to be the way to go. I am also unsure of how to line up the motor to the driveshaft. The mounts have adjustment vertically, but not horizontaly. I hope that make sense. It seems the alignment tolerance is pretty tight. I have no existing mount holes in the stringers to use. Will post more pics soon

It took some time but I got mine to match right on. The epoxy resin is the way to go. I cant help you on the motor as I had my uncle put mine back in. He had already done his. Experience worked for me.

On my 78 I used black high solids epoxy.When it dries it looks like gel coat.
