The straight legged ones could cause problems with clearance.

DO NOT USE SIKAFLEX !!!
Sikaflex is silicone based and will due evil things to a plywood transom over time. The proper sealants to use for this application are either 3M Marine Adhesive/Sealant Fast Cure 4200 if you do not want an absolutely permanent bond, or 3Mô Marine Adhesive/Sealant Fast Cure 5200 if you do want an absolutely permanent bond.

Well I should really qualify that, my bad . I assumed he was referring to a silicone based Sikaflex formulation which is pretty common. If you specifically use Sikaflex 291, you will be fine, since Sikaflex 291 is polyurethane based, not silicone based.

Silicone is inappropriate as a sealant for plywood boat transoms.
