    the transom of the Vegas XT has some technical angles to it (see the first pic of the first post), what I mean is that the transom does not have 90* angles.

    I'd like to put foam on the port and stbd angled portion transom then put coosa on the back transom for strength

    That all sounds like an Oct- May project, one winter. Enough room for knees?

    the boat is very shallow

    I'd say 16 inches from cockpit floor to top-of-deck...but I will put knees using coosa


    stringers will be foam and carbon

    90% of the wood is out, will continue to clean the remaining wood from the transom

    I ran the saw along the lip to try and remove the lip along with the remaining wood from the transom. The lip area did not want to budge. Someone put an inch thick of resin and called it a day

    Really nice project your starting there.
    Have you thought about just going all in and doing the complete restore from start to finish, then go boating with it?

    If the floor and transom is rotted and soft, the core is likely soft as well. A soft core on any boat, let alone a high performance one could be dangerous.
    Really great pictures your adding to this thread.

    I can't see myself not boating this year....this is my year


    I will not go too fast as I am in the ocean in NJ....I know...proly more so to get it done huh?


    I have a couple of trips planned out....inside line in the keys from Miami to Key West or most likely just Marathon...huhahahaha

    Plus I want to see how she rides in the waters that I will be playing in...will give me some hints as to what changes I will do to the hull-bottom. I want to change the hull bottom a little bit.


    it's a long ride to Key West from Miami...but that's the kind of boating I like. Long trips but not running so fast...to soak it all in (the sun and beautiful waters)
