My opinion is that you did a great job removing the deck. Very well thought out as every other step of this restoration. I have to ask how you are going to support the hull during transportation?

Good point. I have transported a hull without deck or stringers; tied to the trailer. The hull moves around enough to make one do a second take. When I brought the hull home (from glass work) I took the back roads at a much slower speed, for peace of mind.

I just looked back on this thread to the point where you mentioned separating the deck. Why is this necessary to replace the carpet and vinyl? Hope this isn't a dumb question or did I miss something. I replaced the carpet on my S&S years ago and had no trouble doing that with the deck on and foam under the gunnels.

lot of great questions I will try and answer them. Transporting the hull I secured hull to the trailer in the front with the auto latch and the wench strap threw the front eye bolt. The rear of the hull is secured with two blocks of wood bolted threw the rudder port hole with a large eye bolt in the center and two ratchet straps in a v pattern to the trailer. This worked extremely well when I towed it to Eddies Fast Glass a 4 hour trip at highway speeds up to 80 mph. Removing the deck does remove some of the support to the top of the sides of the hull and removed about 400 lb. I do not think this will effect the way it tows very much. I do plan do a test pull down the local interstate before the long pull to Viper.

The first reason I decided to split the hull. The only way to get rid of that old 26 year old boat smell (mold,old Fuel, bilge water and oil) was to replace all the carpet,vinyl and to remove all the mold that collects under the deck and behind the gunnels. The second reason I was told that it was difficult to do.

Here is a photo of the back side of my cleaned up gunnel no mold hiding in here.

As far as you transporting your hull, I thought back to seeing supports on WT's 1980. So I looked back through his restoration and found it on post #43. I guess what I was asking is the side to side support of a rather flimsy hull without the top on.

That is a good question there is a little deflection on the top of sides of the hull from about a foot in front of transom extending about 5 foot forward of that point. The rest of the hull is solid around the top edge. The sides of the hull in question run parallel to the slip stream. There may be a greater of chance setting up a oscillation if you run a brace across the top side to side.
My boat has a integrated floor and stringer system bonded to the bottom and sides of the hull that make the hull assembly a lot stronger than the earlier wood setup that WT is working on.
For some reason I am more worried about the new carpet pulling loose on the return trip.

See if Viper can shrink wrap the hull for a minimal fee for your trip home. Should be simple enough...I had a mobile shrink service in King of Prussia wrap the Limited for it's tow home to AR from PA; full shrink wrap, windshield protection for $350. I'm sure just the lower hull would be much much cheaper.
