General Discussion / Re: Stringer removal
« Last post by Plugcheck on February 23, 2018, 01:46:37 PM »
        Use a cut off wheel, vibra tool, sawzall, or equivalent machinery to cut through the fiber glass holding the stringer in place about half way down.   Some cut off just the top, its just a matter of preference.  You can cut a bit into the wood, but try to cut through the fiberglass only.  At some point the entire top of the stringer will be exposed.  Use a chisel or pry bar to break the seal of the glass away from the stringer.   If its black/rotten it will separate easily.  Once removed, you have a channel to insert the new stringer into.  Hard part with this method is fitting the bottom curve of the stringer to the hull, but does save material cost in resin and fiberglass.   Hope this explains it, let me know if you need clarification.

I feel lucky and privileged to have made it past the first 50 mark, so I'm kinda doubting another 50 to go is left in me.

Jeff ( carlsoncvx18 ) would be the guy to talk to ... He has talked to or looked at almost every CV27 for sale in the last year or two.
He passed on all so far.
It isn't to bad to replace stringers / floor / transom / replace or repair one motor & drive / wet sanding, buffing gel and flake on a CVX16 or CVX18 ...
It would be a HUGE job to do it on a CV27 !
Just my 2 cents.

If totally sealed condensation might be absorbed by foam, after 50 years.
If drain holes are drilled water will get in and might be absorbed by foam after 50 years.
If all wood is sealed, bottom of floor wood, key hole for drive, speedo pilot tube, tow eyes, etc. it should last at least 50 years.
Think you'll last 50 years Mike ... LOL

      That had to be super difficult to mount the stringers upside down like that.      Just kidding, looks very similar.   My center stringer is a bit overkill, but I shaped it to fit the center piece into the void left in the keel runner.   My CVZ did not have the same channel.  It ends just before the bulkhead underneath.  I assume to be more stable in turns?

All I have ever seen is the 81 that Mike has in your gatherings, a couple 79's, and the one in the picture that is blue and white, guessing its a 1980.  Where there any other factory colors anyone has seen before?  Have never seen on in person but hoping to at sometime.
