  • Another boat restoration

    Well what can I say
    here I go again
    with all the help from you fine folks on my Glaston V196
    i decided to do another boat
    this time it’s a bayliner trophy 1910 center console
    first off horrible workmanship the tabbing all came off with a prybar with little effort and of course all the wood was rotted
    this boat was built rub style so the deck was tabbed in from the bottom and it was just suspended or floating with some strips of wood gunning across to stiffen it
    the stringers did not support the deck
    my big question is should I put the same size stringers back or make them bigger so the deck rests on them ?
    im worried if I don’t the deck will flex too much even with 3/4 ply
    the original stringers were 1x3 and I’m going to have to use 1x12 lumber if I want them to support the deck
    i need some input and advice here
    I also left 2” around the perimeter of the deck to rest the new ply deck on and to tab it in

            Kcassells I know I was going to catch hell for a bayliner 🤣
            but The price was right FREE
            so you think it will flex too much too
            i know older maco center consoles were built the same way

              I think Scott is correct, The foam is a major player for strength for that style boat.
              You could go back with 3/4 ply. The lip is what I did too, Loved how it worked out. Some of that wood was rotted and I picked it out and added new in between old glass. Then attached another lip under that to pick up the new deck.

              Add a bulkhead then you will be able to use 8' sheets of ply for stringers.

                The boat never had foam as a structural part of the boat

                  And that's why Bayliners suffer!!! A TUB type liner needs the foam for structure and safety. If you don't use foam then I would agree that the stringers should be extended for support. I'd also double up on tabbing to increase strength to minimize flexing of the hull.

                    Looks like I’m sticking with the original plan
                    stringers all the way up to the deck
                    my stringers are about 13” tall and 12’ long
                    I’m planning on making them from plywood because directional lumber is hard to find in that size
                    my next question is
                    what thickness ply should I use and how many layers
                    and is there any specific way to make the joint of where the two plywood ends meet?

                      My Bad. 5/8 ply, add bulkhead so you can run stringers with out butt joints.

                        Won’t that be a weak spot at the bulkhead ?
                        just 1 layer 5/8 ply?

                          Fwiw I layered 2 - half inch strips of ACX plywood glued and then clamped between a couple of 2 x 6's arranged like this for my stringers:

                            Like Steve said:
                            All good there with your method!! Structural ply over dimensional lumber is the ticket.
