    Gonna try to rebuild the transom of my Hydrostream Vegas XT

    After opening the deck to expose the transom, the transom is very thick, sth like 3.5 inches thick....but the edges of the transom where the transom continues to the curved portion of the transom is scary thin, maybe 1/8 of glass skin is all that is holding the transom to the rest of the boat

    I'm a weekend warrior so updates will be slow...

    the transom is very thick, sth like 3.5 inches, but the transom is not connected to the rest of the boat the way I would like it to be, transom is connected with the rest of the boat by a very thin fiberglass skin

    The work today consisted of removing the transom wood. I was always wondering why the transom was so thick. The truth came to light. A secondary transom was laid over the original transom. But when it was done, they left the screws in and was not butted up against the original transom thus having a space between the two transoms somewhere like 1" to 1.5"

    sorry, the caption should say "with the second transom removed,..."

    the "second" transom was added later on in years.

    time permitting, I'd like to do some work on it then go boating during the summer. So this year I want to feel safe about the transom, then go boating this summer.


    in 2019 I'd like to re-core the bottom, then go boating again before the summer is over

    2020 blueprint the bottom, then put it all back and go boating again that same summer

    I don't want to miss a summer (or fall) of boating if I can help it



    ...but the common goal for each year is to vacuum resin infuse all the composite materials I will be putting in
