      No, the stingers are coming completely out and being replaced with full height composite stringers. I was really surprised that the stringers were in such good condition even though the boat had been completely water logged for so long.

                      Im in Ft Myers. Im taking off the week between xmas and New Years to work on rigging, windlass, trim tabs etc. but plan on spending several days on the water if everything goes well.Have you bought your Suzuki yet? I dealt with The Boat place in Naples and got a fair deal.

                        Well turns out that "working overseas" is Afghanistan and in stuck here until early spring. I did put a $100 down to get my name on the list for show pricing for the zuke at the Ft. Lauderdale show. The boat is a bit backlogged right now at HHH but its not a big deal, not like i can use it anyway for a few months. I've always been interested in the western Florida grouper fishing, I'm gonna have to link up with you for that.

                          Thanks for your service, your hull looks to be in capable hands.

                          Merry Christmas.

                            No problem on the grouper fishing, Im setting up my boat for bottom fishing with a free fall windlass and large removable bait well. My son is a CCT and just returned from his second deployment there, so I know what a shithole your in right now. Be safe and we will drink some beers and talk Makos when you get back!Happy Holidays,steve
