Judging by the cracking around the transom knees I guess these were added due to concerns over the transom ?

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.
Cheers Chris.
I will do the mods and re-fit myself later on.

IF the transom is made good then you should not need the Forest Gump metalwork ;-)

Ah, I meant re-fit out the boat, the supports won't need to go back as you say....
