Good looking hull from here. How are they built?

Just a skin out of the mold on the long one, the 25’ true sea ox has some rough height stringers in it.... foam cored with a single layer of glass at this point.

You probably don't want to take all the stringers out at one time as they look important to the shape.

It'd be easier to remove one and use the others for a guide on the height.

I’m even thinking about adding to each side of the stringers.

I just ventured over to “the bilge” and I’ve discovered that CL is no longer with us...... I had wondered why he had not sent me a private message telling me to use some kerosene and a match on the sea ox hulls like we had joked about in years past...

I just got back from a trip to the gulf and was gonna bounce a few ideas off him for the 2 hulls I got... dont much feel like it now.

Nite guys, RIP CL

You can just dado in a top section if the stringers are too narrow. Laminating is tougher, of course, but lighter than full width widening.

Just make sure to fillet the underside and glue the top on with thickened epoxy.
