Yeah...I feel special. Seems like the 82 was the only year that had foam floor pockets and wood construction.

I been thinking about form or no foam for the floors but think there's another question to be answered first - what is the stringer design for a no-foam boat?

My stringers are setup to keep the entire side pocket completely issolated from the rest of the bilge. No water in. No water out. Not sure what skipping the foam really buys me short of one less step during the rebuild. Even if I leave it out, if water gets into the pocket it's not going to get out of the pocket. A quick scan of the 81 and prior boats shows a stringer construction that allows the pocket to ventilate.

Of course, one could argue my floor lasted nearly 30 years so what's the problem? Just decide if you want foam or not and get on with it. Trying to decide if it's really that simple....

Thoughts?

Jeff
