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.
