I have some areas that the stringer isn't bonded. The bonding putty isn't breaking up it just isn't making contact. I have some gel coat cracking in the tell tale areas. My local guy isn't willing to think about it until this winter.

al will tell you to cut access plates under the console, you will need to remove the aux fuel tank if you have one in there

when they get really bad you have to access through the deck, hopefully yours isnt that bad yet. Doesnt show up in a standard survey either you have to get yourself under the boat and look for cracking and physically push up on the hull with your legs or arms and watch for flexing. Boat needs to be on blocks to properly survey

I have an idea. Everyone says to cut sides on console to get access to tab down grid system. Why can't I cut the bottom of the bulkheads and tab the grid down then put a new bottom in? To me cutting the side of the stringer weakens it and you can only reglass one side back in.

I'm not really following you , bulkheads are also part of the grid

look at the picture above you can see where to tab it. You want go about it differently it certainly is your right to do so.

that's why I'm trying to see some pictures of the repair. It seems to me there would be less work in patching the floor of two bulkheads and tabbing the side of grid instead of trying to reach inside holes and then patching grid back. I've talked to Al and he is very helpful. I wonder what the bottom of the grid system looks like prior to being put in hull

which bulkheads are you talking about? there is a main one between large fishbox and console pan,---there is one between back of console pan and the gas tank, and there is one at the back of the gas tank and the bilge. Those three main bulkheads span the entire hull. Then there are 2 smaller bulkhead type spans from the middle of the console to the hull. (at the step up)....where is your problem?

Is this bonding from grid to the hull that's the problem ?? or the bonding to the grid its self that is the issue ??
