    Yes they are tied in. It is a possibility as I do not think they sealed the ends of the stringers before tying into the transom.

    They are separate on the 226. I assume the same on the 216. should be sealed. My stringers are glassed and butted against the transome that is glassed. I cut into one of them to check and to reinforce it. the wood in the stringer does no touch the wood in the transome. they are seperate by glass

    Anyone have ideas to stop water from filling the fish boxes, but still allow water/blood to drain out? plugs work but don't drain, and if I'm not on plane they won't drain when I pull the plug. I was thinking maybe a 3/4" inline check valve, but wanted to see if anyone else had thoughts.

    Mine has a bilge pump set-up with hoses to each fish box. The previous owner did it and said it worked great. The switch was the auto/man kind so it could be used whenever you wanted to drain them. There was also a manifold built to divert different drain hoses to the 3 bilge pumps which the whole system acts like a check valve or pump out. Sorry, No pics since I’m in the middle of a restoration and everything is getting reworked/replaced. Hope this helps

    Working on it as we speak. I’ll post pics when I’m finished. It probably won’t be until the end of September.

    I used rubber plugs to keep them dry and a kill bag full of ice on my 226
    Used them more for storage.

    Guess I can't visualize that very well. blood and guts would run through the pump and not a macerator first? seems like a pretty complicated set up. I would prefer it to not run into the bilge if possible since its just more of a pain to clean out.

    Hey guys, I’m looking for a cover for my 256. Does anyone have any ideas what universal boat cover might work or which one they are currently using? My only other option would be to get one custom made...

    I included a picture of my pride and joy.

    Is the water coming in through the scuppers? If so, I’d recommend the ping pong ball style scuppers. They let water out, but the balls seal off the hole if the water level rises outside the boat. I used to fight the same problem you’re having. I switched to these scuppers and now they’re the only style of scupper I’ll ever have on a boat.

    FYI Just prior to stopping production, John Winterling designed a 242 Cabo hardtop full cabin. I believe 4 were built before Cabo's demise. There must best be at least one still out there! Love to see one!

    I rigged my fish boxes with a Whale diaphragm pump (both boxes T in to a single pump) that exits through the existing drain for the boxes. The pump has duckbill valves that help keep water from coming back into the boxes, but I still keep the boxes plugged from the inside until I need to pump them out. Water more often comes up through the scuppers and fills the boxes. I plug the scupper drains in the splashwell to prevent this, and pull the plugs on the run home in case I take a wave over the bow (which has happened more than once) and need to drain water out of the cockpit as quickly as possible.

    Jim I believe you have owned your Cabo longer than I have owned mine which is 27 years.
    How many hours do you have on your 216?

    Al - I was admiring the work you've done on your Cabo and would like to buy the same type of LED light you used on your podium. I searched Perko's web site and contacted them to determine if the light is still available. Perko claims that it is not one of their products. Do you have any other information about that light that would help me locate one?

    Thanks,

    Richard

    That's hard to say. The boat is 32 years old (I'm the original owner) and I have gone through a few engines in over three decades. I would estimate between 18,000 and 20,000 hours on the water.
