Jim,

Welcome to the group!hull

On the older Stingers, you will want to check both the transom and stringers for any sign of weakness, moisture, or rot.  Also, check along the rubrail for any signs of damage - I've heard that the hull to deck connection may be weak on the 311s/313s.  The following might help you out:  http://chriscraftstingers.com/gallerypage.php?gallerydir=Bad%20Example.
