    Default Sleekcraft SST

    Gearing up to install BBC in my SST. I'm a little confused on how engines where rigged in these hulls.
    I have all parts to do either a 3 point, 4 point, rail mount and even mercruiser type big threaded jobs with cast iron legs. Any suggestions and pix would be great.

    Default stringers?

    I believe it is a standard layup. I also believe these hulls have no actual stringers. Is there any truth to this?

    Question solid build

    I figure that if hull was designed and built without stringers, then the structual integrity is in the lay up. It does have a deck/floor which I will be replacing. I bet the deck is one of the structual components. Any thoughts?

    there is wood in the tunnels but I want to do stringers for the motor rails and 4 pt mounts, just putting the rails and pump brace made a difference feels stiffer

    Looks like alot of work done from one pix to the next. Pump change? Tom JBP told me he actually make a kit for this hull. So the bolts go in from the bottom an "nutted" at the rails?
