Drove 14 hrs straight to pick her up, after work and without sleep got home and already started making progress! It's got a bad drivers side stringer and various other things but nothing a willing and ready new owner can't handle! I have always loved these boats and cherished their design and functionality! I am retiring my v-bottom to a little stock lake boat and putting my monster motor in this one! Any suggestions on proper stringer replacement and do's and don'ts and what type of wood?
