    Re: 1978 bayliner restoration

    Since you live in Montana, I'd recommend these guys in Washington State. It will save you some bucks on shipping and their prices are very similar to USComposites in Florida.

    What exactly are you going to be doing to her? Deck, Stringers and Transom??? If you let us know everything you are planning on doing we can help you determine the quantity of everything you will need to get the job done.

        Re: 1978 bayliner restoration

        What have you done to ensure the transom is good? Have you taken core samples? What is the depth of your stringers? I'm assuming this is an I/O boat? You really need to post some pics so we can see what you are seeing. What exactly are your demolition plans. It's very unusual for stingers to be rotten and the transom not have some issues.

            Depth means measurement from bottom of deck to the hull. 6" 8" 10" how deep are they. You calculate your pour in foam by cubic feet. Length X Width X Depth = Cubic feet

              A lot of people tell you that the foam is structural. My Capri has had no foam for four to five years now. Used every summer and I have been rather hard on it. No cracks no problems. Waves do make a drumming sound when sitting still as Opps suggested. The hull on my 1988 is just as thick as my 1974 Sidewinder.

                  I would Guess-ti-mate you'll need enough foam to fill 60 cubic ft. Since OOPS pointed out that your Bayliner foam IS Structural, you should use the 4lb density foam. Based on USComposites calculations your cost for foam will be approx. $750 + shipping.

                            Check out these two threads. It might answer your question. I know there is another thread that either Wood or Opps put out which has a diagram on the order but I couldn't find it.
