    I saw all of your pictures (btw great looking boat), and i noticed that the stringers looked different than mine. It looks like they go full length. Mine are only 1/4 length, just the engine mount ones. Did you add those yourself?

    Yep I took the floor out completely... Tabbed and added straight on to the end of the existing stringers...
    Here's the album, not sure if you found this...? http://www.vintagejetboats.com/album.php?albumid=81
    Sorry there's not more pics of that part, I had yet to build this forum and start taking & posting pics like a man possessed yet...
