Do you guys reckon its worth getting repaired or maybe doing it myslef? theres also a tear in the floor which will need patching.
Any advice much appreiciated
Did nt have to re glue the tubes,but transom was in a bit of a state only in places tho so dug out the rotton and wood filled it,glass resined it ,then resined two cut templates of hardboard to it then resined over them and painted them with marine paint,not been in the water yet with her ,but seems well sound to take my 20hp mariner,yours does look like more work tho,but if you love the boat gotta be worth it,it got you back in as you say,some pics of my renvation project GOOD LUCK WITH YOURS,,,,,,,Thorny
