You mean you had to actually pay for that piece of garbage. Where in the hell did you find that bunch of junk? The owner should of paid you for removing it for him.

Pretty much.

Removed the floor and the rest of the interior yesterday. Took what is left of hull to carwash to get all the crap out of it.

Time to start on the transom. Still need to find a piece of 1/8" 5052.

Nope, I told him his transom was prob .100 alum. I suggested he go to 3/16" and at least 5052 grade, he said he had some 1/8", I said dat would work fine. Then he measured his transom with his metric ruler biggrin.gif and told me it was 1/16". laugh.gif

You said nothing of the sort. I told you the transom was 1/16", and you said in all your years of working with this kind of boat, you've never seen a transom 1/16". That it had to be at least 1/8". You didn't believe me, so I photographed it. The photograph shows the actual thickness of the transom alum skin @ 1/16", or .0625".

I have found a full sheet of 1/16" 5052 for $98. I'm going to replace the ORIGINAL alum skin with the same material specs. The insides will be 2 layers of 3/4" ply, epoxied and glassed.

Progress report:

I cut out a new transom core. It is 2 layers of 3/4" acx, laminated with polyurethane glue.



The outside edges were glassed with 4oz tape. I then marked the 18 mount holes and overdrilled for epoxy plugs.


I taped off the backs of the holes, and filled them with thickened epoxy.



I also cut out the transom and used it as a template to cut the new core to fit.



The original transom had 18 bolts thru it and into the plywood core, plus the 4 motor mount holes. No wonder it failed. the new transom will only have the 4 motor holes.

Next week I pick up the new outside skin for the transom. After I install the core, I'll have the new skin welded on.

Looks like it was a beautiful day out, should have been fishin' instead of working. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif






Looks like a good start Casey, did you fill it w/ water to check for leaks before putting the new transom in? I don't remember you saying in this post.

I haven't done the leak test yet. I still can. There's about a 4" "step" below where I cut out the transom. Plenty of depth when I decide to do it.
