Floor and Stringer Replacement pics?

Researching restoration of 84 S&S looking for pics of stringer and floor replacement. Searched threads but pics are MIA. I have the typical delamination to the sides of the engine.

I don't believe 84's had wooden stringers. ICBW though

As Jrandol said, I don't think you have wood stringers there. Maybe just need to reinforce the engine mounts somehow? But as for replacing the stringers, that may not be necessary.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Yeah I dont think 84 had wooden stringers either. If you just want to reinforce the engine mounts- take them out and fill the holes full of epoxy and let it dry. put a 1/4" metal plate on each side of the stringer where the mount is and drill you new holes. Floors are easy, if you can take your old one out you can put the new one back in.

If I understand previous information and through owning several of the old boats, the stringers were wood through the 80s and maybe further. The change in quality came when MC decided to glass over the wood to protect it from water exposure. I think the early 83 year models (actually manufactured in late 82) were the last of exposed wood stringers. Please don't hold me to the fire on this as the gospel.

I have an 81 it has wooden stringers covered by glass. Only exposure is where screws are mounted as well as the crossover drain channels in the back. I must be one of the only lucky ones, Stringers are original and solid last time I checked.

Haven't seen any pics of that on the site right now, but your best bet would be Jeremy to get those.
