I have a 18' 81 sterling jet with a basically stock 454 with over the transom headers. I have the twin barrel buckets and a rear bench seat. I have the full stringers exposed. I was wandering do you fellas prefer the exposed stringers or do you put a floor in from the motor forward? ( If so how thick of plywood do you rcommend)The reason I asked is the few times I have actually got to use it it seems that most everyone who gets in is tripping all over everything. I Guess it's because of the amount of interior space as all of my other boats have been 18 to 20' fish and ski's. Again just curious and thanks for any input.
