Between this and the 640 refurb, you're doing some really great work...

Laying the new deck in

We have started to fit the new floor panels into the boat and started laying out the non-skid deck paint.

RyanPratt,

I wanted to get your thoughts. I need to replace the stringers in my Avon 6m Searider. They were .5" plywood. I've had suggestions from closed cell foam, baltek marine plywood to solid douglas fir...

I was really leaning toward the CC foam, but it was suggested that with all the lamination required, there is a greater chance for delam. I'm now leaning toward the solid wood douglas fir, coated with epoxy and wrapped in Fiberglass...

Any thoughts / suggestions?

Closed cell foam.

I'm no expert but i would go with closed cell foam. The foam is not really the strength it is the glass that is the source of strength just make sure you have good radius's on all your joints both inside and outside as glass will need to transition from one angle to the next and will not do 90. make sure you push out all the air between layers of glass and that you completely soak your glass. I would also suggest laying straight resin on the foam prior to your first layer of of glass.
