    Default stringer help

    Hey guys just looking for some input on stringer material. i read some of the posts on using LvL which is very striaght and strong but held together with adhesives. just wondering if the resins will adhere to it good or would a kiln dried douglas fir be a better choise. The boat is an 81 Hondo 5/8 runner with bbc nitrous engine. Race and lake boat.

    thanks in advance for any input

    I have been using LVL and it works great. I use epoxy now days and it has no trouble bonding to the LVL . Some lvl dose have a wax like coating on it that I would remove I always cut my stringers then run them though a planer so that removes the wax they put on them.
    finding nice tight old growth clear vert grain fir is getting very hard to come by and the new growth fir just is not the same in my opinion
