1955 Whirlwind Stringer Repair
I have taken ownership of a 1955 Whirlwind.
My father who has passed was the original owner.
One of the stringers is cracked across it by the back bench.
It's one to the side of the keel.
My thought was to place 2 sections of wood along each side of the crack and use 3/8" stainless thru bolts to secure it.
QUES: what size boards should I use, how long past the crack should it extend?
Do I need to use mahagony or is a another wood type ok to use?
A local wood shop has Brazilian Mahogony?
Would that be suitable?
