first step cut down the transome

We are cutting the transome down to make it flush with the aft seat to ease the entry and exit from the boat to the swim platform.

Looks like another fun project Ryan!

You might think about tying the back of the t-top into the rear of the seat...we did a similar long t-top on my 36' Nautica and that thing shimmy-shuckled in choppy seas until we added aft braces tying it into the transom...

I have been thinking the same thing.

I have been playing with running two uprights from the leaning post up to support the back and also doing a hard top. still running some numbers and we will get a better idea when it goes to production next week.
