My boats an old airgator hull 15'ft, it has five stringers in the bottom. The middle 3 under the engine at the back of the boat keep getting bent upwards a little, causing a Cup in the bottom and makes the front plow more and affects the way in handles. This happens when we are bow fishing at idle and slide over submerged stumps, I have removed the stand and leveled the bottom back out, but i want to add some more support while I got it tore down. Im thinking a couple more stringers and maybe something else for extra support, Any one have any suggestions, maybe some pictures to look at. Ive searched the old treads for info but found very little on this subject. http://www.southernairboat.com/phpBB3/p ... 45e037c2bf#
