Before and After

Just a few shots (for those interested) of the Transom of Kohaku, before and after she went for repair.

4" cracks around the top of the transom knees, all thanks to a weighty outboard, fast helmsman and the Sea Cat out of Pompy Harbour.

Seriously though, there where already some small stress cracks there when I bought the RIB in 2003 (had a twin set-up on). I just finished the Job !

Wasn't any structual probs when the fibreglass was stripped back, it had just de-lamenated from the wood core (but I didn't know that at the time). I had the transom built back up to the original size and has some serious stainless studding holding the new bits together.

Looks smart, Andy.

Who did the work? And can you give some more detail of the "serious stainless steel studding"?

The guy that did the work is Gary of Spartun Marine in Fareham.

I don't have all the details of the stud work but believe it went like this Richard.

Drilled holes into top of old transom and screwed the studding into the wooden core (mahogany). Cut and profiled the new parts of the transom (built up wooden parts) then bolted this on top of the existing transom (should be mechanicly solid). Grind back all the bad bits and some + Fill all the holes. Then fibreglass over the whole transom and flowcoat.

Paul I should be out over Easter, if not before .

I have two weeks off either side of the easter weekend, the first will involve my Sisters graduation, a Family get together, a trip to Bath with my family and Kids things to include a trip to the Historic Dockyard of portsmouth. When the Kids go back to School to second week, I'll be out playing and Fishing. Neal might come down and act as crew .

Hi All -

Haven't been on here for some time, but thought i would help you out with Gary's details -

Gary has worked as a boat builder for more than 15 years and was originally at Rib-Tec with the build of all the Camel Trophy ribs.

He is based in Fareham, Hampshire.

Gary has been very well known for his excellent repairs and is now an authorised repairer for some of the major marine insurance companies.

All types of repairs and re-builds can be sought through Gary of Spartun Marine. Rib's, Motorboats, Jetski's etc.

Im sure there are a fair few of you who have had the privilege of meeting Gary, but if you wish to get anything done at a reasonable price and with your boating needs in mind, then please give him a call on:

07803 388270 or web: www.spartunmarineltd.co.uk
