Just a note for foam removal doubters. This boat has not been used in over a year. Every piece of foam I have removed is wet. the part next to the battery box actually had water on the floor, below the foam.
I was gonna leave some cause it looked and felt dry-WRONG- it's all coming out

A question--As long as I leave the stringers in can I remove all the floor?

And any suggestions as how to get that carpet out, man wish I could find that glue to use today??_LOL

John,
You will want to remove all the flooring and the stringers down to the bare hull. Do you have the boat on the trailer? You may want to consider some extra support if hull shows any signs of flexing or "oil canning".


The Henry 263 is a "pro" grade that's waterproof in 2 hours. It's harder to find than the typical Henry 663 you find at most stores.

I was asking about floor as I read should do one side first. So can I take the complete floor out and leave stringers until I do one side and keep the hull OK??? I think I'm asking this right

Boat is on trailer.

Thanks for glue info.

Yes you can remove all of the floor, it wont hert anything. If you remove your primary stringer and secondary on one side at a time you should be ok. But if it was me I would build up a couple extra supports if you remove both primary and both secondary stringers you need to have supports on both sides of boat if you're going to leave it on the trailer

John,
The stringers (and the foam) extend forward under the kick so yes, it needs to come out too.

John,
I'm assuming you are referring to what some people call the engine cradle. You can pull it out anytime after the engine.

What "boxes" John? If you are talking wood, I don't feel it's worth the effort to scab in new to old.

Regarding the disc, the site is having problems this morning. Keith and family are probably off on a spring ski trip and can't do a reboot!!

I know I'm nowhere ready to put stringers back in. I was wondering can Oak be used as a stringer?
Have alot and my neighbor just got a saw mill....

I know some guys will chime in on this that know more than me but I would be concerned about the oak rotting. Douglas Fir is what I went with in mine. It really isn't that bad expensive. Some people struggle to find it but I luckily found it in our hometown very quickly. Just call around to some lumber yards. Also, make sure it's moister level is low before you fiberglass it in.

John,
No on the Laurel Oak and a definite no to the Hickory. Both are not at all resistant to rot. Even with CPES, I'd worry about them.
