    Good morning Scott,

    its not going to be a serious fishing boat, mostly a ski boat but we do occasional fishing on it. The line-x treatment looks really good, but can I do that myself or I have to bring it to the company to have them do it?
    Line-X must be brought in to a dealer. its professionally sprayed (heated, catalyzed, etc.)

        I think I’m going to go with Line-X. An update as to where I am. I pulled out the entire floor and most of the plywood was in decent shape but there was some rot on the port side of the stern and around the ski locker. There is still about 2” of the old floor around the edge of the boat that I haven’t gotten out yet. The foam is dry and looks good. I haven’t tested the transom yet. I’ve read some things about leaving the 2” of old floor around the border and wanted some opinions on that. Is it just laziness or is it a good idea?

          that is so you have a mark to trim your stringers to, then you remove it when you put your floor back in.

            Thanks Scott, makes sense. This is the type of thing am wondering about though cause I’ve seen it in a few places

              what are you wondering about?

              you cut the floor about 3-4" from the edges to do two things.

              #1, so you dont cut thru the hull, since you are cutting blind with tools of destruction
              #2, that little remnant of original floor gives you a reference point to make string lines to trim off your new stringers

              you will end up carefully removing the bit remaining once you are done with tabbing in the new stringers, then you tab in the new floor, re-foam, fiberglass the whole deck and finish the floor in the finish of your choice.

              go to the DIY sticky at the top of the forum, go thru link 14 in its entirety and watch all the videos

                Will definitely go through that sticky. What I was referring to above was people saying they leave that remaining few inches of old floor and use it as an extra support for their new floor rather than taking it out. Seems like they glass right over it. To me it seems like someone is cutting corners but I wasn’t sure

                  No... they sometimes leave the edge so they have a point to match up to not go over top of. If the wood is shot you can't use it. You will need to mark it out, easy enough. That will definitely be one of your needed points of reference.
                  Most times I'm wrong, Most times I stand corrected..But...Sometimes I'm right.

                    a properly prepared hull will have all the rotten wood and foam removed, the stringers cut flush with the hull and a layer or two of fiberglass ground away so you can start anew
