Hey you just got a year older but a foot longer. Sounds like a fish story.

Looks a lot like what I am in the middle of. The fun is starting.

I've actually been following your post as well. My disadvantage is that I'm trying to do this in an oversized storage unit. No plumbing, which means no pressure washer, just electricity. My shop vac will probably be the most useful tool I have.

Default 1989 Maxum 1900 XR Project

Quick Update:

Since it was Mother's Day I only got to work one day on this. I discovered a problem when I pulled the outboard off the back. There are hair line cracks on both sides of the transom. Do not know if these are stress cracks, or how to go about fixing this. So I'll need your help. The last pictures are what was left of the stringers under the bow compartments. The last pic of the fiberglass "bubbling out" is new to me. Never seen that before. Since this boat came out of Minnesota, I can only assume that it was left outside for the entire winter uncovered, with all kinds of snow piling up on the inside. I don't have any holes in the hull (that I'm aware of).

Looks like stress cracks to me. Is the transom core wood rotten?

Replace all bad wood, open up the cracks to see if they are just cracks and not delaming.

As far as I can tell Mike the transom was only bad at the bottom by the drain. I stuck my finger into the outboard mounting holes and all was solid. But I won't find out the extent of the damage until the transom is out, which may be a few weeks. What did you mean by "open up the cracks"?

Use a dremel tool and taper the gelcoat back to see how extensive the cracks are.

Okay so,
Life kinda got in the way this year, not to mention I've been working two jobs this whole time. Just a quick FYI on the progress: Got most of the interior floor and stringers out, along with most of the floatation foam (I forgot how much work that really is). As the foam came out, so did nasty, stinky, rotted, sewer like water that just drained to the bottom of the hull (can't explain in words how much it reeked). I'm starting a new job that will replace both jobs I have now, freeing up some weekend time to strip and prep the inside hull for new stringers and transom in the spring. ENJOY THE UPCOMING HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!
