Went around today and cleaned up and tied stringers into transom and got P&S stringers glassed up. Next I will be installing the front of the transom box to enable me to install the center stringer.

Ran out of epoxy today so I’ll be once again waiting for the brown truck.

Question for the forum,

I noticed these on the core materials site and was wanting thoughts on using them to replace the original stiffeners as they are the basically the same size that came out and are ready to glass in.

Would like to get them ordered Monday, Jeff are these in stock 8’ lengths? Would need 10

If not I could pick up some 2” thick foam and use tape to glass them in if this will work.

Thanks so much

Those would be nicer than 2" foam. You would have a lot of saure edges with the xps.

Also ordered 6 gallons of foam. Should get the inside hull wrapped up with the last two orders. Got the transom bulkhead in tonight. Will post pics to update soon.

Well still no pics, forgot my phone again tonight, I’m almost done glassing in the stringers :lol: it’s funny how when your dreading doing something you always get distracted by other things on the project, so today I started working on the transom box tops, and of course the stringers ain’t gonna finish their self :(

Trucking on, hoping to get these monsters done, they are eating up the glass and epoxy. And I still have the giant to do. I did get the transom bulkhead in and glassed up.

One thing I will say is the 12oz tape is night and day to the 1708. Wet it out lay it down and your done.

I hope I can use the the 12oz tape on the topside will definitely save on time and epoxy.

I will take pics tomorrow.
