Ditto.


Just a wee curveball from the stainless plate dept:

I removed one of them from my transom when I changed the engine. Looked wonderful & shiny form the outside, but tround the back was a bucketload of salt and oodles of corrosion. It was so bad my plan of using a corner of it to mount my Nav lights was promptly abandoned!

Thing is unless it is perfectly seald (a utopuian fantasy in itself) water will get in, eventually evaporate and leave the salt behind. the rest you can work out!

I'd have a think about it first. Whatever you put in the transom won't be as strong as original and then you're going to drill another hole quite close to it. I'll be inclined to leave it as it is

If the boat isn't going to be left in the water all season and a careful Sikaflex job is done, all will be good in my opinion. I disagree that the briney can't be kept out.

Bummer..As a dead man walking from a previous hole drilling thread :-0 I suppose a thread about the relative percentages of engine falling off with 6 ilo 4 bolts would go the same way too

Plate hard against transom = V. thin layer of Sika. Even if you coat the whole thing there is going to be relative differential expansion & contraction. Even Sika has a life expectancy when cured and will eventually go hard = hairline crack on next expansion / contraction = ingress...... And that before you induce vibration form the engine.


Once agian this may turn out to be one of these "agree to disagree" marmite subjects, but based on what I found, I'm steering clear!
