  • Hull Thickness

    Did a search but couldn't find anything related to how thick the hull should be. 1/2", 3/8", 1"? And is there a way besides drilling a hole to determine the thickness.

      Not that I know of. My '73 231 is a 1/2in thick at the keel.

      Hammertimes '88 254 is 11/16in thick in the bottom away from the keel.

      Does that help?

        doesn't it also depend on what part of the hull. When my stringers were being rebuilt, I remember seeing the midsection being pretty thin while the buldge area, where I drilled for my fresh water pickup, was considerably thicker.

          Thanks for the info. I am just trying to put my mind at ease. I began to worry when I looked underneath the boat and saw the glow of the sun coming from some unpainted areas on the hull, but I guess that is to be expected. I really don't want to drill it. Thanks again now I need to go glass some more!
