    1983 vector

    Got the boat in July of 2021 and started gutting to rebuild. Built a jig to set it on and started cutting out transom, old core, stringer box and foam boxes and ground entire hull down with a brazed cup wheel and 36grit wheels on a 4 inch grinder. For transom replacement i used 3 half inch thick pieces of marine plywood bonded together with a wet layer of csm. Then put in a layer of 1808 where transom will fit then bonded the new transom in with a layer of csm. Covered that with 3 layers of 1808. Was going to delete the splashwell but being i kept the piece i cut out i decided to put it back in for its functionality. Once that was done i laid a layer of 1808 threw out the hull. Now im putting 1/2 inch balsa core in, started up in the wings and then did the pad. Bonded everything in with 2 wet layers of csm and covered with 1808. Thats where im at now, hopefully i can get the rest of the core in soon!

    did you connect the top cap stringers to the top of the transom? circled in red, if you did not cut some plywood that fits in there and glass it up and put it in there from the inside. That is an oversight the factor never connected the top cap stringers to the hull transom top.

    Thanks fellas, debating weather i should put stringers in now then put the core on the outside of them or do the core first then bed the stringers in. I was worried without the stringers there the core may want to slide down some once i bed it in and put some wait on top of it.

    So for that area rj, i wetted out a piece of 1.5 oz on a flat table with clear wrap on it the. When that hardened i cut out pieces to fit in that gap and classed from both sides, then went from the back and tied in what i cut out in the wood with new wood bonding it to the transom and existing wood under there. Only thing i want to do is cut out another piece of 1/2 inch about 6 or 8 inches longer then the patch and laminate it over that

    It helps a lot connecting the cap stringers to the top corners of the transom. I would go stingers first as your not bagging the core down, it may slide like you said.

    may have to put some cabosil in also to make it thicker, or saw dust or some sort of filler if the milled fibers do not thicken it enough. But that's what I did. Bed them in and then once that starts to kick put 1808 over that fillet and it is strong!
