Mako 17 rebuild

Post by Rlmako17 on Sun Feb 12, 2017 7:16 pm

Decided to dig into my mako after contemplating for a while. Got the floor and all the foam removed yesterday. Moving to the transom now. Wanted some input on the best way to get to the transom core. I think I'll have to remove fish boxes but wanted to know the best place to make the cuts. " />[img(1px,1px)]

I would recommend cutting at least a few inches forward of the boxes, this way you have plenty of room to work and when you go to put it back together you have mostly flat joints to fair

I was talking to day trip. He thought it may be best. I was wanting to set up a rear platoform like he did. What would make it so difficult. Just pulling it apart?

Got Stringers installed. Transom grounded ready for raised skin. And cap removed. Foam had the starboard side of the cap a pain to get off

Looks good! Are you going to put in a center stringer?

Haven't decided may do the pvc like you did in your boat. I laid 1808 over the hull yesterday.

the boat originally had some pretty tight spacing between stringers. I would definitely put one down the middle to break it up.

Ok so run the pvc and looks like you ended yours at your bilge bulkhead. Correct?

Yes, and you need to use a tall PVC section. You want that PVC stringer to be 4" tall. On the boat Im building now, the PVC is mostly a drain, so I just used one layer of glass. For yours, you will be using it as a stringer, so you need several layers of heavy glass. Your basically making a hollow fiberglass stringer, PVC is just a shape/form

You don't think my addition of the bulkheads will give the hull enough support without the center stringer

not unless you make them very tight together.

I would have cored the entire transom. Its OK to do it the way you did, but all the pushing is going to go through those stringer extensions

yeah, it just would have been better to core the transom all at once - continuous glass across the inside skin.

Got bottom close to fair and shot with first coat of primer. Haven't trouble getting some grinder marks out that are running length wise. Not sure if you can see them in the pics.

Finally finished the bottom. Now back to building. Going to add another bulkhead I guess. Between these two will be a livewell/cooler then the anchor locker.
