  • Anyone elses stringers like this?

    My stringers on my 1983 mako 20C do not have a hole in them to allow water to drain. If water collect's in any of the wells between the stringers other than the main one water just sits there. Seems to me there should be a hole to allow water to move over to the drain plug!

    Same thing on my 85. I just accept the poor design and leave it be.

        I'm sure when you get on plane most of the water splashes over the stringers. Maybe their thinking is standing water is the lesser of two evils compared to limber holes that are prone to water intrusion and rotting the core?

          my 20c was the same way. The center stringer stopped just short of the transom so if the bow was high enough or when you got on plane the water would run back. No big deal. I can tell you that you should NOT drill a hole to let the water pass through the stringer.

              It looks like you have a plastic valve unsecured & able to flop around in rough water.

              I'd be more concerned with this breaking and or leaking

                Same on mine. Found that there actually were holes between stringer and transom when I did my pour. Now they're sealed with the Arjay that ran out, I get more standing water, but positive that no water is getting into the stringer. I'll take the standing water in that case.
