Again, Really Nice Work!
Agree with Eric. That is pretty much like I did my transom. Looks like you had plenty of bracing to get the new wood pulled in tight.

That is about the slickest method I have ever seen for setting the stringers in place and holding them up off the hull at the same time. I think I need to keep an eye on you and learn some more new tricks :D

Thanks for very generous comments actually, Most of methods are members and tech supports from site and hoping to get some lot more tip and tricks as throughout the rebuild.
And turnbuckle was just happened when I was trimming stringers wife ask me what is that for(point it to turnbuckles laying on my tool box)
Thanks to her... :D

Well you need to do something nice for her.
I have put stringers in a bunch of hulls over the years and never even came close to thinking something like that up. That is just so slick in so many ways it needs to become the standard way of doing it.
Now I am really interested in your project and will be watching very closely. Please keep posting with lots of pictures.

Hi,
That looks like a great project - she almost looks like a Grady. My CS23 had a very similar stringer setup. Good luck - I'll follow your progress, looks good. Will you be using epoxy from here on or will you stick with polyester?

CS23 almost there
