1991 cajun hull materials

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone could tell me if a 1991 cajun has wood stringers, wood transom or fiberglass? I have worn out google, youtube looking and I think the transom is the composite but im not sure. I have not found any info on what the stringers are made of. I have found a cajun for next to nothing that needs the decks redone, gel coat looks to be gone, 150hp force on the back that he "said" needs the carb rebuilt, he also told me there are no cracks or leaks int he hull just spiderwebs in the glass. Im wondering if its worth getting an restoring? It has been sitting uncovered for what id assume years.

I would consider it to be a huge project.  His opinion of what the engine needs is questionable.  The Force engines were made by Merc but hardly thought of that well. It might be hard to get parts. It might just need to be totally replaced.

What condition is the trailer in?

Where are you located ( what state) and what is your boat budget. I bet we can find you something that needs far less work. I think you may find that incredibly low cost to purchase it is going to cost a bunch by the time you get anything done.  If that were an aluminum boat then that project would be different.

I'm in Virginia. The trailer is in good condition structurally, I'm sure it needs new bearings. He told me he has 2 more wheels, and a trolling motor to go with it. I would be buying it just to tinker and see what I can make it into, I just wasn't sure what all a job like this would be like. I think the top cap needs to be removed to get to the stringers, transom I think would be ok if what I read is true. I wouldn't want to put more than $1500 into the boat. I would go buy a new tracker to fish on now, just saving more money to put on it first.

If you are worried sbout dry rot you can lift the OB off and check the through bolt holes, that is where any dry rot starts and use a inspection light.
