Default Floor in Proline

As some of you know, I have a 1986 Proline CC that I need to replace the transom. The easiest way Iíve read is to tackle it from the inside. Due to it being a full transom with a bracket and not being the cut away type of transom Iíve had to cut a good bit of the floor to be able to make it look right when replacing. The problem is I cant get the dang floor to come up. It appears it was glued with what looks like a concrete type glue. Meaning the glue is grey and wont break away. Do you all have any ideas before I say screw this project and just break down and buy a brand new boat? I looked at new boats Tuesday and Iím tempted but Iím not ready to give up on the old proline...lol. Thanks

Have you considered a Pour-in Transom?
There's several on the market, ARJAY 6011 ceramic pourable transom compound and Carbon-Core to name a couple.

Yes i have. The problem is, I have already pulled the cap off of the trasnsom and now it is bowed outward. Itís pretty rotten. I wish i could fix it easily but it looks like the only way to fix it is to rebuild it or buy a new boat.. Iím just not going to pay a shop 3k to do something i can do for 1k. But I donít even know that i can do it for 1k because I cant get the deck of to get to it. Not to mention I may find rotten stringers....

I agree you may have rotten stringers as well. It may not be worth what’s going into it. May be a lot of work for further disappointment. I’d look at parting out what you have or selling it as a project and then go get something else. Or you could go sink it and collect insurance money. Just saying. Good luck. Sorry to hear about this headache.

If you have a bracket on the boat i think you will need to remove all that regardless of how you repair the transom, chances are if its that rotten nothing is in the original position anyway. The sole was probably put down with some type of polyurethane or core bonding compound, i ran into some stuff like that on a 69 John Allmand i rebuilt and you pretty much had to grind it off. If you have to open it up near the transom cut all the tabbing along the sole and gunnel and try to cut across a stinger so you can tab the floor back in when you are done. If the sole is wood its likely someone screwed it down as well but that's probably no harder to deal with than the bonding compound they used.

Not true....A lot easier to install from the outside.....You have created a LOT of work.


Obliviously the transom will need to be derigged.




The sole is bonded with a mix of resign/Cabosil to make a thick glue.

Thank you all for the tips. Yes the bracket has come to off and all rigging on the outside. The main reason for tackling it from the inside, is because I’m pretty sure I have stringers that are going to need work. They are starting to rot at the transom area. So i figured I’d try to fix it. But this all honestly goes with how much work is it actually going to be. At this point I think I’m going to continue messing with it but look for a hull to put my yammy 150 on and just run that for now.
