What is the purpose of wrapping the stringers with fiberglass? It seams it keeps the water in and adds to rot. Can the stringers be epoxied down and left exposed to the air to dry out?

I think the fiberglass adds quite a bit of structure to the wood, kinda like putting it in a pipe.

If you just glued the wood down, once it started to decay, it could separate along the bottom just above the glue.

That's my point just like in wood boats I wonder if the wood will last longer if it allowed to dry out being exposed to the air.

You get have the fibers to bond it with rest of the hull and give it more surface area and strength.

Wood boats do rot especially where water isn't allowed to dry typically low in the bilge and aft at the transom. If you bond the bottom of a stringer, the wood that isn't saturated next to the resin will stay wet.

Just not having foam would be all that's needed. I had a 64 AM Skier in the late 80's with it's original floor and stringers and no foam, no rot.

Or you could go with the LVL like Kris did.

Would think a local lumber yard could get it for you. We drove an hour for it.

I checked with Sweetwater Lumber they do have Douglass Fur . They Quoted me 152.00 for a 2x10x14 and 75.00 for a 1x6x10. 450.00 for the stringer material is too much even the Southern Yellow Pine was very expensive. I will check into a LVL next.
