    Did you through bolt yours through the bottom of the boat and use carriage bolts? Could a guy do a 1/4 stringer set up to hold some good power say 800+horse power?

    Mine is through bolted with countersunk fasteners and a aluminium back up plate on the bottom side. Mine has held up just fine with upwards of that 800 number. Stringers would just make for a easier and more conventional install. Not sure if there would be any structural or ride benefits cause its a tunnel and the heavy lay ups used in these boats.

    mine is thru bolted, no backing plate with 550 hp second year of running this way, it does feel stiffer than before but someday would like to do stringers and rails and setback pump like tom said( waiting for him to try first), the pump brace I made helps I think tying the pump and motor to

    This setup hasn't been in the water yet.. Going to be interesting to say the least.

    So did you do full length stringers or just where the back seat would be? I thought about a 1/4 stringer with a cross board at the front of the stringers and a u shape pieces on the transom to help hold them and do a rail kit with motor plates and a plate to hold the pump. Do you guys think that would hold a 545ci kaase headed bb ford 800+ all motor then spray on occasions?

    If your going to go down the stringer road I would just go all the way and do full stringers. My combination spins a A impellor 6300 without stringers and no known ill effects of it. Im currently setting the pump back and adding a shoe and rideplate on mine. Also one thing you might wanna check is the pickup tubes in my tanks were very small, the fitting was decent size but the tube part itself was small.
