    Default Stringer Rot... Help

    So I am just finishing up my Hondo T-deck build and after getting my motor in I realized that I wasn't looking as hard as I had thought when I bought it and there is some rot right inbetween the mount blocks. Is there any way to get me through the summer without having to tear the boat apart right now and replace the stringers. Rail kit. Stringer Washers. Any ideas. All i need is to get through this season then the floor stringers and transom are all being replaced.

    Just leave it on the trailer all summer and you will be fine. Then when fall comes and it cools off tear right into it. If that motor breaks loose when you're running it you will tear a bunch of shit up.

    If I were to do that I could tear it apart now and maybe have it done to get it on the water before it starts snowing again. There has got to be a temp. fix to get me through a season. and if not my wife is going to... well I better find a way to fit a matress in the boat too I'll leave it at that.

    Are those full length or quarter length?

    never mind i found pictures.. that suxs. I would not trust rotten stringers. Good chance on shit ripping out and breaking more than your boat. that really suxs.

    post pics. I know a good solid fix as long as the problem is minor.

    I wouldn't even consider ever running a boat with rotten stringers....especially if the rot is anywhere near the motor. Asking for BIG trouble that could even be fatal.
    IMO, if you can't run it safely due to mechanical or structural defects, keep it on the trailer and don't risk it.

    I'll get some pics up tonight. It's about 1 1/2" section on the drivers side almost dead center of the mount blocks. But after all the other guys telling me to leave it. I'm almost scared to try anything.
