I have an '87 F33, that I've done extensive work to over the past 6 years only to find out it had the characteristic rotten stringers in the stern, I replaced them to the tune of $5k only to realize ALL the stringers are rotten bow to stern, estimate $11K, and I am not certain of the transom, I hear those are also a problem. I've been told by some mechanics not to worry about it, just use the boat, it'll be fine. I generally run the boat in relatively calm seas, at +- 30kts. I would appreciate any advice!
