    Default Stringer replacement

    I'm putting full length stringers in my southwind. What's the best way to shape and fit them?

    First ...................you must remove the stringers and prep everything out / surface . Two , you need to figure out the degree of dead rise / angle you have on the bottom of the hull using an angle finder , T-Bevel or ................. and when it come's to cutting and shaping the stringer itself I will use a Table saw for a straight cut and or a jig saw for a rounded cut or irregular shape of a Stringer although ( note ) if no table saw is available a jig saw will fit the bill for just about everything , and when it comes to shaping the stringer or rounding the top ( leaving no edge ) so your fabric has something to roll over or onto I always use a router going with a 1/4 , 1/2 , or 3/4 - round bit depending on the thickness , and if no router is available going with a machine sander , da , electric , file board , or even hand sanding just to knock or round off the edge ( on top of the stringer ) so your fabric will have something to roll over on minus a sharp edge .
