  • 1980 Glastron HPV 165 resoration.

    I'm creating a new post. Its my official rebuild post for easy tracking. Hopefully I can get the picture thing figured out but I'll give it a shot.
    The floor is bad. The transom was soaked which I found after separating the cap. Let me know what you guys think!

      Re: 1980 Glastron HPV 165 resoration.

      So I got most of this thing ground out except for the stringers. I'll get pictures soon. I was looking for opinions with my stringers. I have 6'' aluminum I-beams that are 20 feet long which is plenty. The problem is that the stringer I have now are 7'' at the deepest point. So I though that if I can put a 1'' cap on top of the beam it would work fine. What do you guys think? would i be better off going back with wood? i'm still planning on sealing them with fiberglass to prevent corrosion. any thoughts? thanks
