Stringers Position - floorboard

Hello,

commonly where you put the stringers in the floorboard, more back, more in the front, or in the middle??

do you have any kind of problems of rubbing the bottom of your inflatable with the carpet in the trailer,,, because in mine, I have some marks appearing in the nuts zone of the floorboards.

tks,

António

Hi Antonio

SIB stringers generally start around the middle of the floor panel nearest the transom. Often there is a “stop” at this point so they are positioned correct. I googled your boat make that you have in your profile.. Ocean Bay .. and found this U Tube video.



Assuming it is the same as your boat..here is a still shot from the video..I added the arrow highlighting the stringer start position.



Cheers

Also..re your question of rubbing..yup.. I got a mark on the underside of my PVC bottom from hauling it on and off the trailer. The mark is where the two front floor panels join ..and it rubs on the bunks. Its only a mark ..after 12 years of use..but when I first noticed it..I glued a patch on the inside of the boat .. just to help pad that area..and for no other reason..never been a problem though

Tks, for the reply,

the image that you have post, (have some difficulties in post images) shows exactly where I put mines stringers,,,, the question is if I put them more in front or in the rear,,,, is that a problem, or assuming that the floor is fixed, it's ok!!!?

regardless the rubbing, I also put a patch in the inside,,, and maybe if I move the stringers is going to help relieve that that stressed area,,

regards,

Stringers Position - floorboard

For maximum rigidity each stringer should be positioned centrally over joint in floor section and then joint in stringers will be central over floor panel.
Will still work if not totally central just not as strong / rigid.
