  • Super embarrassing glass work

    We ripped up the floor in our 21' fishing machine, and there was this horribly covered stringer staring back at us. Its so slumped and sad! But the foam is intact, 40 years later.

    anyone else encountered a stringer finished this badly?

        I wonder if that isn’t just the CSM layup they placed on the underside of the plywood they then set down over the stringers to form the sole/deck. They could have set the plywood down immediately after it was laid on (that Friday afternoon) and it sloughed off once it was set in place. If that’s the case, then it wouldn’t be material from the stringer construction.

          Oooh! Binford! We hadn't considered that! We looked at it for a good 15 minutes just like.... huh. Hahaa.

          the foam is exposed on the top of the stringer in about a 3 ft section, but that could have been pulled up with the plywood when we removed. Good thinking. I like this answer better than looking at that stringer and thinking it was good enough

            Makes me wonder what’s going on under my floor.
