    I am starting my Midland 19 rebuild. I have dug out the old rotten stringers. Luckily the last guy cut out the sole already. ( Thanks Garth). I have gone back and forth regarding replacing the sole with nida core or plywood. Given what the boat is worth it may be getting another plywood sole. I am spending most of my budget on a new ETEC 90 hp. I'll start posting pictures as I go.

    Just ripped out the deck/strings of mine today. Took only about an hour or two because the only thing that had glass on it was the deck. A pleasant surprise actually

    I have not used stainless screws anywhere on a boat except where you can see them in ten years. I have been using ceramic coated screws and recently took a bunch of stuff apart that was in the weather for ten years and the screws were as good as the day I put them in. Stainless, unless its 318 bleeds rust all over the place.

    That black screw was just to hold the line to level the floor timbers.
