Alright you Lake Erie maniacs talk to me. My question is on stringer replacement. My father's boat is a 27' 1994 Sportcraft Fishmaster. Father ran into this boat early last year buying it from it's original owner. Can't tell you how many hours it has on it as I don't know and pop can't remember. However it's not been chartered but has been fished seriously on a regular basis. Boat came with practically all the gear one needs to fish Lake Erie any style. Wonderful dream deal Dad ran into in my opinion. Boat has 350 Merc Cruiser in it. We've fished it pretty good for the last 1.5 years. Runs good. Everythings sounds good. No major vibration, rattleing etc... Rides smooth in the water other than rougher water conditions of course. This is the first inboard we've ever owned and I am aware of most things with an inboard but would like some educational suggestions and information any of you Lake Erie faithfuls could give us on Stringers. We appreciate it. Specifically: - Signs of needing replaced/what to lookout for? - Any daily maintenance checks concerning the stringers? Things of that nature. We don't see any issues at this time but are aware that eventually they'll possibly need replaced. I'll stop there for now. I welcome any and all discussion on stringers. My ears are open.
