i just made a pattern for a couple of my stringers and dry fit them in place they look pretty good, i have a concern though, hope its normal, the stringers in my boat which were a guess factory, fall a little over a inch from the transom towards the bow . it looks like they would fall the other way. is yalls the same way?

They are pressure tubes that equalize the pressure to the speedo's...

Is ther any maintnace on the pressure tubes? And also the bracket that holds the sterring cables before they attach to the ruder mine was mounted to the stringer I see others mounted to the hull, Will I be ok by reataching it to the stringer?

Good question. My steering cabel mount was mounted to the stringerl also. I thought about relocating to hull to avoid putting more holes in the stringers, but haven't made up my mind. We will see what others think. How far along are you with your grinding and stringers. I did some more grinding yesterday and have the right side of the boat 99% done and about half of the left side to complete. I am hoping by next weekend to be glassing in the new transom.

What did you ever decide about the floor? Go back with factory incline or install level?

Looking good. You will have a lot of blood sweat and tears in this when completed with an extremely high sense of satisfaction. Can't wait to see the finished product.

If the stringers get higher going aft, then when the engine is in and it is sitting in the water, would it be level?
