hey guys, well i spent the past 4 months buying parts and paint,exc to get this boat back to new. and pulled the motor off today to see how bad the transom was and its completely rotted out. the problem im stuck on is the shape off the transom. only the "V" area was reinforced. the sides of the transom are hollow and dont show any sign of reinforcement. the first thing that came to mind was seacast. maybe use the seacast spacers to encase the "v" and then pour it in.? looks like the transom was a thin coat of glass on eachside and alot of wood inbetween, not layers. love the boat design but not the steps he took in building it. it is a mitch craft from sarasota,fl. 1989 15'2" model. more pics of overhaul to come. any opinions or help is appreciated.
