Well here it is. My new project is a 1985 Four Winns 170 Horizon. I bought this boat thinking i was going to just rip the motor out of it but i have now decided to cut all the rotted floor and stringers out of the boat. I have spoent three days on it so far and the project is progressing fairly smooth. I have removed the top of the boat with my buddies hoist on his service truck. "What a way to save time and your back". Thanks Darrel..... Well so i am into the stringers and have noticed that the foam is soaked so out it goes. I have parked my 8x10 trailer next to the boat and as i grind off the stringers and rip out the foam it all goes in there saves me time frome having to bag it all up. Its nice to have an inclosed trailer to just chuck it into. I tried to upload pics but i am having no luck. I am using grindersand a sawz-all for the majority of the ripping and tearing. I do have one question if anyone can help me with.... I read that the stringers are not supposed to touch the hull and it seems that way when cutting them out but the fiberglass that runs up the stringers is somehow built up under the stringers in a vertical fashion. Is there something to use to hold the stringers up. Can i use a strip of foam or something. I just want to make sure i do it right. The way i look at it though is that the fiberglass is very rigid under the stringers so why cant the stringers touch the hull. I understand the pricipal but looking at the fiberglass and how it supports the stringers i figure the load of the wood on the hull is the same either way. Give me your input.
