Interesting, I've never glued a transom back on in my life and my gut feel would be the same with it being a structural area, but the picture looks quite straightforward and doesn't need to air tight, it's a flat rigid surface and the rubber looks in good nick, so am I missing something?

Could it be reinforced with some strips screwed or bother through /into the wood?

Ah but they've realised that with good prep (cleaning back to bare metal) and quality two pack paints they can get 20 yr life out of the bridge coatings - and I suspect its the same for transom glue! I take your point about how far back to strip it - although it looks to me like the whole side is off so might be an obvious stopping point?

I think the problem might be that if the transom to "tube moulding" glue has gone then the tube to "moulding" glue might also be weak. I think Office888 has advised previously all the sections are taken apart and properly glued as per how it was made. I'm sure he said it takes 10hrs to do properly.

Including cleaning, yes, about a 10 hour job by a professional.

Peter_C on here rebonded his transom...I think he said it took him about 25-30 hr as a new guy?

It's not difficult, just really fiddly. It has a lot of "stages" to the gluing. It takes about 3 sessions to glue everything up.

The whole side of the transom has separated from the tubes, I can fit my hand through the gap, so I really don't know how much I would trust a limited repair tbh. I will get a quote, but its looking like it will be uneconomical to repair sadly. It was a good boat until this.
So, I will probably be in the market for a SIB again soon if anyone spots anything

Wow, this post is food for thought next time I'm 20 miles out... needless to say I check all the seams on my aerotec very, very regularly!
