    Default recommendations for floor & stringer repair

    I've got to replace the floor and stringers on my '87 Ski Supreme (basically the "sister" to the Sunsport), but don't know anyone in the area that does that type of work. Im in Knoxville, TN, so I'd like to stay in this area. I'm not looking to spend a fortune, as I only paid $6500 for the boat 5 years ago, but I also want to know that it's done right and I'm not going to be doing the job again in 5 years, so I'm willing to put in some investment if it will be worth it in the long run. Any suggestions, recommendations, or help that you guys can give will be greatly appreciated!

    From my understanding, Donny at Bennett's Boat Repair in Maryville, TN has done a bunch in the past. Maybe give him a call.

    Ptownkid, yes, it's a Sierra Supreme. It was made in Louisville at the time when Fowler made the split from Mastercraft.

    You are looking at 3-4 k to do the floor stringers and carpet. Give Bennetts a call.

    $5,000 for stringers and floor at Donny's I think is the going rate now.

    It's a chunk of change, but well worth it. I had Donny do mine ('89 Sunsport) over the winter and I was extremely pleased, he is a pleasure to do business with. I recommend him without hesitation.
