Congrats on the new boat. I have bought a similar 28' sabre, 1976, on the cheap and am redoing the entire boat. Bulkheads, sole, stringers, whole nine yards. Perhaps we can share info and fill each other in on suppliers etc for parts, and share methods, pics. If you are interested let me know. I have all winter to work on mine and intend to have it all pieced together for the spring so im moving pretty fast. Tonight after work I replaced the cutlass bearing complete with new 1 5/8 wire reinforced exhaust hose and double clamped for good measure. The old hose I was able to pull out with bare hands, clamps and all. Surprised the old hose didnt sink the boat. After dinner I cut a few bulkheads and have glassed up all kinds of pieces including stringers etc. Ive done this kind of thing before, mostly with power boats but the methods are all the same so I have a good idea where im going. Hope your project is coming well. Keep us all posted on your project, my pics will come soon.
