I'm curious to know the details behind this horrific transom failure. I've never seen a transom fail like this, with the break so clean like that. The upper engine mount bolts pulled through the transom!

One thing for sure, they were not babying it....You can also see no bond to the deck/splashwell at all.

Pretty sure Dalton Turner was in it, or witnessed it when it failed. Posted those photos on Facebook. Not sure how much he wants to share his experience.

Is that aluminum gusset a ranger factory install? Doesn't do much good when its bolted to pretty much nothing (foam Knees)maybe one layer of mat overlap. Sad if that's all factory, Sometimes wood is good...
