I was by the glass shop last week due to an inadvertent altercation between my poling platform and engine cowling. Anyway, I came across this little gem. The shop is in the process of installing the pressure treated stringers and a fuel tank mounted in the floor between the stringers. What really intrigues me is the lip where the sponsons meet he transom. It looks like someone previously installed sponsons on a 16' whip. Is that the case, or is this something I've never seen before?

This is not my boat, I don't know the owner. Please don't comment on how absurd this setup will be when completed. I know!!

Ok, I know ya said not too... but it was a cool skiff that had some value to it. Wood in a Hells Bay? Just wow.

Somethin does look off about those sponsons to me though. Hopefully one of the HB gurus can chime in and educate us both!

Not commenting on the setup. I'll just say I would run from that shop and find a much better one!
I completely agree with Firecat, but I'd be screaming for my life as I ran out the door. These guys are clueless. Double pressure treated pine 2x6's, seriously, are we framing a deck, and absolutely no way to properly bond them to the hull and glass them. Run very fast!

@Boneheaded might be right. Otherwise you are going to have your knees in your face sitting on those boxes now.

Texas tags on the trailer. TX Registration on the hull. TX numbers on other boats. I assume this is in TX.

Is there any chance they're using that framing to keep the hull from warping while it's being stripped down and rebuilt?

As for those sponsons and the rolled edge, all I can say is, "WHY LORD? WHY?"
