    Ebko Stinger Rebuild Thread

    Some of you may remember the debate on whether I'd need to re-core my Ebko or not - well she's rotted at the transom and in a lot of other places. So that means another rebuild thread for you guys to be entertained with!

    In trade for me entertaining you I'll be asking for advise here and there.

    Today I pulled the rub rail and transom cap. IT was a giant pain and I'm still working on removing the old phillips head screws holding the cap and hull together.



    It's super wet and rotted in there.



    In addition to rivets there are nails holding in the transom! Not sure what that is all about.

    As always you can check out the full write up over on my blog.

    Separation

    Screws removed after grinding off heads and punching them through to the inside. Fiberglass strip holding the cap and hull together ground out.

    Hey my photos are back. Just in time. I’ve pulled all the rigging and motor off the boat for a wrap job over the winter. Also on the hunt for a new motor.
