My most recent acquisition the Chinook sea fury was looking like its general clean and tidy up was going so well
I spotted the outboard bolt holes in the transom were not sealed and were getting wet where the boat is currently stored outside.
I took a closer look and drilled a few exploratory holes below the bolt holes and found the ply inside wet
With my head in my hands
I started to think about scrapping it and cutting my loses early, But instead I have spent the last two days searching and reading about Transom repairs.
Up until tonight I have not found the answers I was hoping for But have just read a few pages by rotdoctor.com that has made me believe I can definitely do it myself.
Wood preservation, rot repair, and restoration using epoxy resin on boats, homes and log homes.
After reading the rot doctor article I am thinking about cutting / grinding the fibreglass from the back of the transom and exposing the wet ply then pulling it out and replacing it.
I have read a few threads on here and was hoping to get some more advice before starting.
My questions are
Is this going to be a good repair or am I
Has anyone else tried this ?
Thanks in advance
