  1. For many years on my 420, I have noticed a build up of water collecting in the outboard stringer in the engine room. I first noticed it when an engine belt shredded and found it was wet because of this water build up. After searching for the source, I noticed if you spray water on the boat, it runs along the topside walkway and over the side right above the vents of the engine room. I found that the way the structure was made in that area, the water adheres to the side and flows in the vents. I attached some plastic strips above the vents to diver the water away and it seems to prevent the majority of the water from finding its way into the engine room. Curious if any other 400 or 420 owners have seen the same issue?
  2. I'm not looking to start another discussion of wood vs composite I'm just looking to see what year Chap stopped using wood in the stringers and floors of their 23-24 ft line particularly the 236 ssx. Are the transoms still wood?

    Ok so I did what most do by mistake but I found and purchased a 85 200xlc for the intent of rebuilding. We looked for a while for a 8 passenger ski boat for the family and couldn't agree on one until we saw this one. My question is can you do a partial fill on transom (seacast or fiberglads) to stop the wood from wicking from the bilge plug? Still will be leaving a 1 to 2 inch below floor line as a ledger to glass new wood in. Any opinions
  5. I have now had 3 surveys done. 2 on 330's 1 on a 320's. All the boats are about 10 to 12 years old. All had delamination and cracking on the stringers. Can anyone tell me is this common? Is there a large issue with this hull? Is there any extended warranty placed on this issue? I love spending money on surveys but I'd rather own my own boat this summer. All input is welcomed. Thanks in advance!
  6. I am about ready to hit the water. If all goes as planned, I will be taking a test ride Friday and/or Saturday. My question is should I pull the lag bolts that are holding the motor mounts to the stringer system to recaulk/ seal them? The boat is almost 20 years old, but it sat most of it's life unused, dry stacked, indoors at a marina. The boat is solid as a rock, but I want to keep it that way. I try to keep the bilge as clean as possible and boat in salt water (salt acts as a preservative for wood and keeps it from rotting to a certain degree). Is this something I should do? Or am I just creating unnecessary work that could strip the wood? Thoughts from some of you guys with older boats would be great! As a side note, all of the through transom fittings look great and are packed with sealant ala drain plug and depth finder.
