What is the best material for boat stringers?
Similarly, it is asked, what do you use for boat stringers?
Use wood where wood was used, plywood for plywood, foam for foam, etc. Attempt to duplicate the species of wood used in the stringer as well as the dimensions of the wood. You can use a more cavalier approach to replacing low-density core materials than you can for active cores.
One may also ask, 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.
Similarly one may ask, what kind of wood is used for stringers?
You can buy untreated or pressure treated wood, as well as stringers that are pre-cut and easier to use.
What is the best wood for boat stringers?
Most of the oaks are difficult to glue with the adhesives you'll use, and they're heavier then necessary too. Stay away from the light weight stuff like cedar and white spruce. They can work, but the stringer usually has to be larger in dimension for the lumber to do it's job.
