I noticed holes behind the strut bracket. you can drill and add a birch dowel- epoxy in then cut off when dry. seal over the top ,the inside I leave with epoxy over the tapered dowel. no cut. unless its in the way.

Hi pincho
Like before the Twin Craft !! (I used to have.... Find some old photos you see, including; 42 "/ 47",)

This is a low angle V boats, if the Strut Improve the result will be turning tail beating ! ( Not easy to control )
You are using the right propeller faster than before !!

little too old for a Twincraft.
More than likely it looks like an old Witch Craft out from the Texas or even an early Sightler hull to me.

The Twincraft maker (before he sold the rights to the boat) is in our district here on the east coast.
