Ahh thanks... that makes sense. Those dimples are the "spot weld" type marks I'd noticed. I assume there must be glue too as the water seal?

BTW I really like the look of that jacker plate... just wondering if the way it places an outboard 2"-3" further back as well as allowing for raising could be a neat answer for the Aerotec splash issue??

I do not know what the Aerotec splash issue is but my other boat has a bracket on it and it rides better with a bracket than with the old i/o. I did go just over the 5" difference in raising the mini jacker. I think it is about 1inch up for every 1foot out you go, so 5 and 1/4" up instead of 5" (sorry no metric conversions here). We will see. Hope to post once I get it all fixed. Super foggy and wet here so I am going to have to wait till it starts to get dry for the transom repair.

Yes it comes with a nicely routed marine ply backing plate.

Next step is pull up the entire bottom of the transom, clean, re-glue. Oh yeah, also put on the mini-jacker and got it up to 5". Seems way solid but I am concerned about rolling it up. I think I will have to make a canvas cover with padding for mini, jacker.
Did you clean around the patch with solvent? It looks like a professionally done patch...well done!

The bottom of the transom is glued. Only the port and starboard sides are welded.

No glue...when the plastic melts, it also acts as a sealant. It is suspectible to rot though from the top (i've had people set boats upside down in the grass, and the top edge of the wood wicks water up it) and the bottom (if the water sealing patches on the bottom aren't maintained, then water wicks up the bottom of the wood under the glued PVC section).

I checked my box of goodies...I actually have a little piece of transom as a demonstrator to show you how it works:

Excellent images of how they do it. Many thanks.
