The mount cannot be replaced. Only repaired. The wood transom is welded to the holder. The holder is welded to the tube.

Fill the cracks with a little black 3M 4200 or Sikaflex 291, then squeeze them together...get creative and make a jig to hold everything together while it cures overnight. Trim the excess away with a razor.

Then cut some black PVC and put a patch over the whole top of the transom holder. I'd do both sides so it is symmetrical and looks nice. Remember to MEK the surface first and to mask off your area that you are gluing. Excess glue turns orange and looks nasty.

transom cuff repair

3M makes a product for fixing plastic bumpers called Duramix 4040. This can be bought at many autobody supply shops. It is more expensive than 4200 or Sikaflex but it is far superior in the long run. I've fixed many transom cuffs over the years with it and it is easy to work with. It also cures much faster. If you fix it with that then cover it with a fabric patch you should be all set.

Thanks for the response ,I was going to put a over sized patch on it but the 4200 is a good idea . under the crack ,should I fill it then press it down and together ? There is a void under the crack its bonded on the outer part of the circle .? That is the way it was made

The Duramix will stick to the molded cuff and to the tube where it makes contact in the void.

Going to bond the void ,then use pvc fabric or rubber ,material to cover the area , any brand of glue? The one with my patch kit is only a tube of glue not strong enough .

Use a two part adhesive. The stuff in the repair kit is really made to be used as temporary fix.

4200 or 5200? I thought 5200 was: a) stickier than 4200, and b) more of a permanent adhesive.

Or is 4200 more suited to PVC than 5200?

5200 is simply overkill for the installation. The strength is not required.
