New Zodiac Project

Transom was ripped out. Replacing and patching is my winter project.

Are you able to reuse the transom or do you need a new one?

The former owner was generous enough to include a new one. I am still reading up on stuff and watching youtube videos on how to proceed.

Take your time with it. Many people rush them and then fall apart after a short period of time. I've seen many hacked even by repair shops.

Be sure to prime the wood before gluing.

2-part PVC glue, mixed, then thinned 50% with MEK works fine. Apply 3 coats with ~5 min between coats, then let it cure overnight, and start the actually material gluing the next day.

Looks like my ole college days Zodiac in Charleston SC. Man oh man, I had a blast on that boat. Mercury 20 on mine, a 30-40 hp would of been better.
