The boat has a rolled edge, and at the stern there is a small lip, 11" on each side, that tabs back. Would it be okay to cut those away flush with the transom? I'm thinking it'll be easier to wrap the glass around the transom. I realize they're there for rigidity, but a new transom should be plenty stiff....no? Or should I wrap the glass up on to the tabs....then over in the middle section? The transom will be two pieces of 3/4" marine ply. 

Thanks.

I'd leave the tabs, they help stiffen the corners.
Polyester resin and 3/4 oz mat will make those bends, as will 6 oz tooling cloth.
If using epoxy, then just 6 oz tooling cloth. Many layers.

I would just cut them off.... You may have to if your cutting all the old stuff out.... It should be just fine.

The pic shows everything already cut out. It's all ready to go.... Or so I thought.
