Few days back I post that the engine coupler went on me. Well when I took the engine out to replace the coupler I've notice that the right engine support had colapse.

So, I knew I had to do some work back there one of these days, but I hoped it would wait till this falls. Obviously, it's gone be fix before that.

Are you replacing the transom?

Yup, you have to keep an eye on the motor mounts. I look at mine every time I open the hatch. I lost a coupler because of the mounts too.

Yes I am. In fact, when I bought the boat two years ago, I test it for humidity in the transom and I knew it had to be done. At the time, the offer I made took the cost of repair into consideration.

It's realy not a surprise to me, I was just trying to extend it to this falll.

Why is the transom so thin??? :confused:

I think mine is about 2" thick. Just looked strange to me
It is thin because I'm replacing the inside part of the transom that was all rotten, and whats left to see is only the fiberglass from the mold. Once the inside panel which will be made of 2 layers of 3/4 inch marine plywood, it'll be close of that 2 inches.
