Re: Ski Nautique stringer replacement

Measured, templeted and cut my rear floor panels tonight. Also put the first coat of epoxy on the underside to seal them.

Re: Ski Nautique stringer replacement

Joel, The sand was not real wet so it came right out with air. You could really cast any void that you want into the foam. I am ready to get the floor back in this puppy. On another note I did post on Correct Craft Fan.com Joel so hopefully those guys will take a look at this site ==>http://www.corr...

Re: Ski Nautique stringer replacement

Thanks Larry! The one smart idea I come up with every now and again is over balaced by the dump mistakes that I usually make :doh:

Re: Ski Nautique stringer replacement

Made some progress this weeked. Pour the foam between the outer stringers and the hull sides. I wanted water to move along the stringer so I used sand to cast in voids. This worked really well. Once the foam was poured in I used air to blow the sand out as well as a hose to get the balance out. http...

Re: Ski Nautique stringer replacement

Thanks Guys, the water will be held in the void between stringers and the the bulkheads (not in the stringers themselves). In my case it is for fresh water wash down but could be used for some wake ballasting. It is only about 12 gallons so not enough to do what most do with ballast. I am more conce...

Re: 1988 Correct Craft Barefoot Nautique

I need to post some progress shoots on this but this rebuild was finished about 8 months ago. Diehard Nautique fans won't like it but it is 10 times better than what the factory spit out. Doing a 1989 Ski Nautique now. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/14945/DSC00950.JPG http://gallery.bate...

Re: Ski Nautique stringer replacement

Making some progress. New stringers and bulkheads made of glass. This is the mold I made for the stringers. Two pieces of MDF with gloss mica on both side. Edges rounded over. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/14945/IMG00031-1.jpg This is after lots of grinding. Stringers are jiged into pla...

Ski Nautique stringer replacement

Jaques, Replacing the stringers on my Ski Nautique and have built as mold and laid up hollow sections. There are two main stringers and two outboard secondary stringers. Looking at the lay up for the LB 26 it looks like 6 layers (3 each side) of biax over foam. Any thoughts on how many layers if the...

Guys, Just came across the replies on this. Thanks for the complimnets but clearly the new Owner brought the job to a beautiful conclusion. I did cut the shear down about 3-4" and made it straight (no sweep). The overhang on the deck worked out great. What a great boat! The guy who bought it called ...

Bertie,

I just sold my 73 FBSF and I had used epoxy extensivley in the engine room. Never had any issue. The engines don't generate enough heat to creat an issue in my opinion. What diesels are you going with?

Good luck, Jim
