It might be worth getting that looked at, perhaps some work on the transom would enable you to ditch the metal braces.?
It's being more than looked at, the whole boat structure is being done by a professional boat builder, so the deck is coming up and the transom and hull sorted. It's the main reason I am doing the refurb.
I will do the mods and re-fit myself later on.
