TRC, if your talking about the one with the circle, it is a picture of the hull before cleaning it up (I took several for reference) and it was Tabing left over from transom box. All framing was choppered in so it looked scary ripping it all out. There was a lot of white fuzzy glass😁.

Thanks for the recommendation, I am planning to put them back. I have plenty of 1/2 ply I can rip down, bond to hull, fillet and glass over with 12oz tape.

Yeah, that's the one. I thought it looked too thick for tabbing, but I could see that the bottom of the hole was the hull, and you've got to get rid of anything "bonded" to the original hull lamination :!: Chances are, anything above the original lamination will be a secondary bond, and you can't be sure that it's actually bonded. A good example is my Silverline.

While using a hammer and chisel, I thought the stringer tabbing was bonded to the hull in GREAT shape. After switching to an air chisel, I found that the tabbing was barely stuck to the hull 8O

I understand how scary it was...especially as thick as it was :help:

Fallguy, I’m lost on what you are saying, I thought your were talking about the gutters for a form to glass over.

I am. But only as a path for any water that gets below. If you are confident in a dry bilge and no leaks than foam it up.

Ok I got what your saying now, still pondering foam locations. Got some more glassing done on the stringers last night, will probably get them finished this weekend. Other than that a lot of measurements and decisions 😁

Just realize water goes through a pinhole and if you want to remove it with a bilge pump; you have to make a place for it to flow and collect. My two hulls have no pump in the back, but I expect I might need one someday; so I built a well if I can't keep em dry.

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.
