I have done this before!!! Use layers of MARINE grade plywood glued together to get the thickness you need. Once they are glued, use a well thinned-out mixture of resin to saturate, and seal-up the wood, (apply multiple coats) then install it!!! You should never have to do it again if you do it this way!Has anybody ever replaced a transom in an aluminum boat
my transom was rotten and i have removed it and i plan on putting a new one in
if anybody would be interested in putting a new one in for me i am willing to pay
Pentox is no good for this application. IF you live near sackville I have some fiberglass resin and mekp (hardner) not the crap they sell at canadian tire.you can have it.Where do i get marine grade plywood
would pentox work good for sealing it up?
so also there are bolts to go into the transom and whats the best way to seal those bolts
and I dont have a cap for the top and its a lowered transom so its not just straight across so im wondering how im going to do this do i rivit that or what
so if anybody is interested in doing it for me I WILL PAY!!!
i just bought a 50 year old house and that takes up alot of time and I would love to get this boat in the water this year
thanks for reading
what about epoxy would that be anygoodWhatever you do DON'T use pressure treated wood for the aluminum boat.
It will cause corrosion followed by little pin holes.(copper and aluminum dont' mix)
Marine grade(pricey)or regular plywood with some thompsons water sealant or fiberglass resin would be best.
Stainless fasteners and or aluminum rivets.
