|Remember this disaster?|
Removing the old transom was the hardest part. The transom tube supports were actually pretty tricky to get clean, the wood broke apart before the glue did so we had to scrape, heat gun and Goo Gone the supports to clean them up and give the new adhesive something good to stick to.
We bought a piece of 3/4" oak plywood, Ron cut out the shape and drilled the hole for the drain then we put a couple layers of fiberglass on and painted it. Voila.
|Ron started fiberglassing in the kitchen...|
|But had to move to the spare bathroom, shut the door |
and turn the fan on due to some nasty odors
|Gotta love some free oil-based marine paint|
|The only part of the dinghy that is shiny and new|
People hate to see us go, but now they'll love to watch us
