Agreed. Since the epoxy resin doesn't dissolve the binding agent in the CSM it can be a biatch to wet out fully.

Most people cap them with glass like uniglass or biaxial to build strength into the stringer. Think of it like an i-beam. I probably would add a couple extra layers to the cap as well.

laying out bulkheads, tank, etc the next few days. Will be doing some slight modification with the short center stringer sections to optimize boat storage. In deck flush hatches 22x22(OD) bilge access >bulkhead 22x32 dry storage section >bulkhead>tank>bulkhead>22x46 insulated storage is the plan.

Reached out to privateer and some other builders on my plans and modifications necessary, may foam fill keel and glass over, not 100% decided yet.

I vote for fill in center stringer, glass over and then run 3"PVC cut in half and then glass over.

Looks good man!

My Mako had a wood keel stringer that was rotted to hell. After I cut it out and ground down ugly glass around it, there was a bit of a notch in the hull that did not look like it would accept glass mat very well. I was planning on using 3" PVC cut in half for my replacement keel stringer so I backfilled the notch with thickened resin containing a shit-ton of milled fiber and chopped fiber then applied a layer of 18 oz roving woven over the whole shebang. Came out great.

I backfilled on my last privateer, but that's a ton of resin and thickener and have seen foam filled/glassed solutions as well.

Had some time this morning before work so I laid out a visual tank/bulkheads. Bilge will get a flush in deck professional hatch 22x22OD 18x18ID, dry storage will get 22x32OD 18x28ID, forward fish box hatch 22x42OD 18x38ID.

From the stern to bow my mock up measurements Length wise are 24” (bilge)/bulkhead/42” (dry storage)/bulkhead/tank (measurements 18w42”long 25gal) in a 50” space/bulkhead/62” (fish box-insulated storage)then capped off with a bulkhead. Keep in mind this space is 27 1/4” wide, and approx 7-9” in height depending.

again these are just the center bulkheads. I plan on adding bulkheads to the outer stringers in the same locations and I guess it’s appropropriate to also bulkhead outer stringer to hull as well.

We cut mine out a few inches off the bottom like you are saying. No problem at all. Referring to the side supports under the gunnel cap.

If you can get away with it allow more room for the bildge. About 36" would be nice, mine is 24" and its a little smaller then I want.

Hope to make some moves tomorrow.

slow going, been a busy summer with work and travel.

this week I leveled stringers, epoxy sealed and started to lay out bulkhead templates, drilled drain holes at the transom for the stringers, epoxy sealed. Will be out of town the next 10 days.

One of my biggest snags has been this center stringer issue. Privateer had two short center stringers from the factory, that I am modifying to provide for significant in deck storage. Was going to foam core, was going to pvc glass tube, finally decided I am going to go with a short 3-4" wood cored stringer.

My deck hatches should be on their way shortly, will be ordering tank as soon as the center stringer and bulkheads go in hopefully in the next two weeks. Will also be gluing and epoxy coating 3/4" strips to both sides of the tops of the stringers

I know it’s been a while.... busy summer with fishing/business/family/travel.

Today I got the center keel stringer in ran a 3” stringer front to back bedded in the keel area then glassed in place x2.

Doesnt seem like much but it really was a big step for me because I wasn’t sure what I was going to do there, some had recc foam pour core, some said I didn’t need anything, some said fill the entire thing with thickened

Tomorrow the bulkheads get installed. My three in deck hatches are here now as well. Tank ordered today. All measurements for deck layout with hatches leaning post console etc all laid out. Special console picked out from a Carolina builder that I am very excited about.

Got after it today, all the bulkheads cut, test fitted, tacked in, then glassed in. Feels good to check that off the list, went back and forth a bunch on console decision which had some of my bulkhead and hatch measurements changing. Ultimately made up my mind and away I went.
