Hi, my name is Kerry

Stringers generally only have wood in them, they are structural parts of the hull.

If water is coming out of a stringer, there is likely some damage to the hull allowing water into the stringer.

You may have hit a log or underwater object, you need to haul the boat out and inspect the hull for impact damage.

I tried to accept the phone call request but it didn't work for some reason.

Does the boat vibrate under power?
