Continental bottom

Post by trebot » Sat Sep 29, 2018 9:06 pm

Have '56 18' Continental. New to plank hulls. The outside bottom is 1/2" plank. The inside(Bilge) is plywood. Is this original from the factory?

That's how the factory did my 56 Sportsman. Does the inner plywood bottom have the screws in it? If it does its more than likely original.
