Whether these are actually called structural stringers, I am not sure ( I think they are). This frame is what the floor is screwed into. The limber holes allow the water in the boat to drain into the bilge.
Dave is correct I'm referring to the limber holes. Our bilges look very different as chef has the c/b model.
