Do all fiberglass boats have stringers?
Similarly, it is asked, how many layers of fiberglass do I need for boat stringers?
Probably 3 layers fine if you glass or bond the floors to top of the stringers.
One may also ask, can fiberglass boats rot? Fiberglass won't rot but it will get brittle from UV exposure. That's why it's usually protected with a coat of paint or gelcoat.
Correspondingly, what is the best material for boat stringers?
The best stringers are not wood. Just finished making (experimenting) with several different composite stringers utilizing various technologies, comprised of epoxy, Kevlar, carbon fiber, and other materials. Excellent deflection and stiffness and wont rot.
