    If people concentrated on the really important things in life, then there would be a shortage of fishing poles.

    Hey all,
    My Starfire is an 87, but basically the same design as apd855's restoration. I need to replace the plywood flooring and wondering if its possible on this boat without splitting the boat and doing a total restoration like apd855's. I just dont have the resources or expertise to do such a job, but I need a solid floor.
    Thx

    Welcome to Iboats bscha! Your question might be better received if you start a new thread with your question about the floor. Try posting it in the restoration thread with pictures or performing a search here on Iboats as it might have already been addressed. Your project may not be as simple as plywood as you will have to check floatation foam, transom, stringers etc. Soft floors usually indicate more damage below. All these areas have been addressed and some threads are great tutorials. Posting comments like these in another's thread is hijacking and considered a no-no. Good luck with your floor and smooth waters to ya!
