Adding a set back lift bracket will add some stress to the transom, and if it's old and wood, it could need doing even if you don't see cracks...yet....

    Lifting the deck opens up the boat and makes all repairs easier to do. Doing the transom now with composites and literally tying the transom to the deck and floor/stringers makes it a very strong, never rotting repair. Once and done, and "If" you ever want to repower with more...NO worries, it will be ready for whatever you hang on it.

    Document all your work and "If" you ever sell it, this will help sell it for sure.

    Boat suppose weigh 700lbs. With mod 2.5 say 240ish hp. Is low 90s far fetched?

    Pulling the deck is still an option. Thinking recoring center section now adds rigidity to hull for added strength when deck comes off. Starboard flotation box and bolster area wet; so they came out.Attachment 423985

    I'm not familiar with the predictor and it's hull design. Rigging, prop choice and set up is key to get the most out of any rig. Attention to detail always pays off. My 16' ran mid 80's with a 7 pedal 2.4 almost 30 years ago.

    Picture is a bit fuzzy...old picture from actual film days... It took that much set back to get to air out...and it did!

ID:	432857Stringers and frames fitted. 1/2" Bluewater 20 (Coosa). Need to bind the pieces together to give me one inch stringers. Should I use 1708?

    1.5 oz mat usually isn't used with epoxy. It will soak in but doesn't break up the binder, so it doesnt like to roll out. But for inbetween 2 layers of coosa should be good.

    Really won't matter what you use with epoxy. Just some epoxy putty will do fine. They do make mat that is epoxy compatible.
