I can't tell by your photos but he very last blurry one makes it look like they overlapped the floor? You could just peel the second layer back a little bit, but if it is double secured by the protecting layer...run it!

I've started to clean of the glue residue, this is going to take longer than expected lol. I've noticed that the transom has started de laminating so it's going to need replacing, I was wondering if I there is any other material other than wood that I could make one out of. I like the idea of a black plastic one.

I have never seen any other product used for the transom, but that doesnt mean something else wouldnt work.

But plywood is cheap, easy to find and easy to work, so why reinvent the wheel ?

I would think the problem with most hard plastics would be getting a suitable glue to stick it to the boat.

Zodiac Futura 2 help

I used plywood to replace a transom on a similar zodiac. 2 layers of 3/4inch marine ply with epoxy resin as the glue and then epoxy coating of all surfaces after shaping should stop it from delaminating again. Also gave it a real good bonding surface the mounting pieces all adhered real well and has held up well to two year of Lake Superior use. Do you still have this boat? I need a few measurements if possible I am restoring one now also.

I own a Zodiac Futura mark 3 in Mexico Gulf Cost.

It is very important when you tow the boat and when you aré using it to hace THE correct pressure on tubes. Under inflación damages the transome.

Also when boat not in use and store put on the botom part of the engine (near prop) something that will help relief weight from the transome. Or store the engine apart.
