Default Trimate Floor question

Did a mid 70s Trimate come with a floor and stringers?
I went to look at a 16.5 or 17 Trimate Sunday and it had no floor at all.
This did not seem correct to me. Here is a link to the boat in question

Thanks Roger

They had a floor and a single stringer that ran down the center of the boat.

Thanks Outlaw that is kind of what I thought. The hull seems solid and if I get it a single stringer and a floor does not seem to bad. Maybe put some knees on the transom also.

Seems high for a boat in that condition. If the floor and stringers are shot you can be pretty certain that the transom is also bad. Pull on the motor and look for movement in the transom. Look for stains and cracks. Good luck, keep us posted.

I agree with Redstrat; it look like a $500 boat to me. Good luck.

I was thinking more like $400 if the motor compression test OK
Nobody really wants a boat with no floor and a dead motor. If it was not a Check mate I would not have even looked at it.

400 sounds like a good price!
