Tim has come along way on that boat. He works for me. I recommended he check out your build on your Mako. Great guy.

Are you redoing the transom itself? Wet wood? Or are you just working with the bracket?

Your right Tim and his son are VERY nice folks. His son and my dog Jack wore each other out the other night. LOL

Transom core will be replaced with 1 1/2in Coosa 26lb density.

Cutting the fittings off. Much faster and less hassle.





All thru hulls removed.



Now lets draw some lines and break out the MultiMaster. Then take a peak.



Nothing but tissue paper and Earth Worm dirt. Finish the cut.





Stringer ends look fine.

I'm guessing you are doing the transom in epoxy? What would be the benefits of the epoxy over poly in this kind of repair? I'm not being a smart azz, just looking to learn a bit more. I'm rebuilding my skiff soon, and I need to replace the transom when I do. It will be an inside repair though, as i,m gutting the entire boat.

Yes. Epoxy Resign. I use a Extremely slow resign. It has a better adhesion qualities and it doesn't stink like polyester.
