  • To save... or not to save...

    Hi Guys,
    I have a 72 Sanger family skier that I purchased a few years ago. Unfortunately I didn't know crap about flatbottoms and bought a real piece of junk...

    The question I have is that the last 5' of passenger side stringer is rotten, and the floor is rotten in that area too. (2" out from each side of the stringer.) Sorry I don't have pics... but its really soft.

    Whats the general cost to replace part of the floors and stringers? I'd hate to see the boat get destroyed, but I cant dump an unreasonable amount of cash in it. Also, any good floor guys in the Hollister,CA - San Jose,CA area that I could take it to for an estimate?

    Thanks!
    Mark

      I'm sure Gone Green will chime in on this one. He just had both stringers (bow-to-stern)replaced. Along with the false floor and transom,not to mention the forward bulkhead. I'm not sure exactly what he paid but I do know its was in excess of $6000.00. Not sure of any glass shops in your area. Good luck hope all works out for ya.
      Ever wonder why boogers only smell after you pick em?
