The transom knees are in fact an extension of the main floor bearing logitudinals and these are installed only after the main hull skin laminate, keelson stiffening, and the full transom has been installed.

Example photo only not the actual 720.

Progress Report on Shakespeare 720 SportRIB

Main hull skin laminate has been laminated and spray rails are all foam filled and overlaminated after skin has cured

Dark item is a carbon fibre 1.2 tube that acts as both keel stiffener and full length limber pipe for hull drainage.

Last photo shows marineply transom timbers 2 X 18mm having been "bonded" into hull with structural adhesive prior to interior laminate being applied.

Transom Inner Laminate being completed prior to main longitudinals, knees and transverse frames being fitted.
In forground is some of the +/- 0/90 degree stitched combination glass cloth used throughout the construction of all our ribs - this is much stronger than conventional woven rovings, and due to its much flatter weave it creates a laminate with a much lower resin to glass ratio which is therefore lighter but with greater strength
