Back in.... the transom is rock-solid, no flexing or bending possible! I`ve attached a picture- truly enough engine for this small craft, but I won`t change it, performs really great! On the picture you can see the color which is just a faded orange, looks totally different from yours?!

greetings,
Wolfie

Here`s one for Suzuki- Ive found the picture of the Metzeler with the ugliest windshield ever made.... look`n puke ;-)

By the way, Suzuki: How long is your stealth-rib? I`ve got hold again on the fellow that sells brand-new tubes for it, interested?

greetings,

That engine looks great on the back of your boat, those tubes dont look to bad either, they may clean up a bit better, these boats new had a lighter coloured orange tube and not the deep orange hypalon that you get nowdays.
I'd suggest scrapping all the sealer away from the elephants trunk and sealing it with a diolen strip and expoxy resin and then cover this with Gel coat to seal it, if you just use gel coat it will crack and allow water ingress into the transom and cause a problem, its not a hard job and will make it a more permanent fix.
Mine had been soaking up water for a long time before i bought the boat and i new it was getting weak even before the problem became evident.
