Does anyone have information on Tripp 18' hulls? What should one be aware of when purchasing one?? Hull problems etc. etc.? I am considering a 1978 Tpipp 18' hull.

Try doing a search on Tripp 18. There has been a few threads on the 18 and there are a few 18 owners here. I have a 1974 22 project boat. It's a heavily built hull. Still extremely solid.

Just spent a lot of money restoring a 1973 18. Found issues with stringer delamination once deck was removed. Also there is a structural box forward ( see photo) between the stringers that was cracked. Basically entire hull needed to be re-built.

Whoever did the first deck replacement ignored the problems but there was no way of knowing when looking at the boat.

Any more questions be happy to talk 617 347 8999
