Why not leave the port stringers in while you install the starboard ones, that way you have one side to mirror off of. Even if they are not in great shape you still have a somewhat good base line and it will offer some support to the hull.
That's how I did mine in my '85 worked out great.

Read gundrivers post too late. But the port side will be a great template. It came out great this morning.

Spent the better part of two days working on the boat. Pics follow. We are now on to the grinding. The angle grinder with a cutting wheel for the stringer fiberglass was great. Had to get the multi-tool in there too for a few tight spots. And the reciprocating saw in the foam cutting the outline was huge. We could then pop it out in big chunks with the crowbar. The starboard side was pretty shot but the port came out whole and should make a nice template. It still needed to come out but was nice to get it out as one piece.

Painted the needle on the Airguide.


Made a template with ply just in case.








We hunted in the early morning and evening Sat and Sun morning...no deer. Coyote was second place.


Port primary and secondaries came out great. (Starboard crumbled into pieces.)




Let the grinding begin...

Donald, you are close enough to participate. All the beer you can drink while grinding fiberglass!

David,
Obviously, you and Jesse have misjudged how much beer I can drink.

I will give you a buzz that this week to see when you guys are working and I can come and join in on the fun. This weekend is bad for me, but I will have some time over Thanksgiving. Maybe, you guys will be working over the extended holiday and can help.

My lungs are 1/2 full of fiberglass dust already.

Well, an evening and morning of grinding in the books. That was fun, no one said ever. But progress was made. Unfortunately we won't be back to the boat for three weeks. Got one side and part of the other rid of the carpet glue. And got started on the bottom. A few pics of the fun...
