Lets see some new pics! Been following this and thinking of doing the same myself. Very interested in your plywood mold.

I have been wondering the same for a while, really cool project. After I saw this thread started I thought how cool it would be to do to a 233.

Stringers were good, so no big deal, have the Coosa 26# anyway. Got a wild hair (thanks to THT member AnitaFish22's thread!) to stretch her out a bit while we're at it to 26' so out came the sawzall. Added some temporary bracing and slid the transom back to start filling in.
How did I miss this thread?

You didn't, you just forgot about it just like I did!

As mentioned in the 20 Sea Craft thread in the Boating section, we've finally got around to working on the 26 again. Transom Coosa installed (1-1/2" 26# Bluewater), foam stringers extended with Divinycell H60 and an additional stiff knee in the center just because! Made up a filler piece of glass for the motor cutout and tabbed that in on both sides before the Coosa went in.

Added in a little framing to hold her shape while flipping and set her on a dolly. Ground back about 18" for a good scarf joint on the outside and starting to added the Coosa pad

Adding layers of 1708 and 1700 with gradual overlaps into the forward scarf and alternating overlaps on the transom and chines.

What's the length to beam ratio now that you stretched it?

She's 7'4" x 23'4" on waterline Maxie, which by my math is 3.18:1. Pretty solidly in the performance hull category.

It will be interesting to see her performance numbers and stability when finished....will you splash a mold for her?

Have you ever used Nidacore for stringers? Pros vs cons?
