oh and the holes are 10mm, there were two of them but after exploratory drilling there is now about 20 x 3mm holes as well.

I have been reading that you are somewhat of an expert at this.

Have you left the tubes attached then and Is that the outside fibreglass in the last pic ?
If so I presume you have cut the inside fibreglass and removed the ply that way.

Far from an expert just a good learner ,,,
Yep peeled every thing away from inside leaving outer skin in tack. ,,tubes was heat up and de bonded from transom internally only,, I will re bond when completed

Original was only 18mm ply now 38.mm for extra strength with bonded knees ,,,,
Will post pic completed am tomoz

My problem (apart from buying this rib) is more like below the transom/deck level, As most of the damp/wet patches are below the outboard mount holes in the hull.

The area around the original mount holes are drying nicely now, But after more exploratory drilling ( 40x 3mm holes ) I think I may be at the point of no return.

As mine is in the lower rear end I guess I would have to cut all the back out to get at the ply.
It just looks like such an extreme job I may patch it up and put a thick alloy spread plate either side the transom as has been suggested to me and just get out on it.

I also keep thinking that before this and the ribtec I had a sr5.4 and that had 3 large 5-6inch holes in the transom and hull, Two for the trunks and one for flooding hull, That back end was still solid so If I were to just cut out the worst part down around the drain plug I may get away without all the drama.

If your going to do the job do it from inside you will need to remove a section of floor but its a much stronger job to leave the hull in tact & replace from inside
I'd stop drilling holes your transom is starting to resemble something made by tetley 😉

Im sure of heard of solid resin transoms before. I guess they might cost a fair bit and dont know if its a DIY job.

Sounds like your onto it.

It's got to be replaced, you will regret it later if you do not,,,

As mentioned you will need to cut a section of floor away to do,so but not hard to hide afterwards when complete ,,,
just anti slip coat the floor it will be fine,,

This viper had a twin rig set up,originally and it's been badged and hacked at to take a single with an ugly plate know which pic I prefer
