ah, I found the wine gums just after you'd left, Jayne had done her best to hide them behind some stuff I don't got near, but I'm on to the game now

I'll give you the nod when it's back n full of shiny bits

thanks Matt it's decision time this w'end, brother in law is coming round with some ply to av a trial fit, see how it looks. I was really hoping to use the ply that came off, just so there was at least something of the original rib to see, but it's shot

my problem is I've never really understood wood, does strange things, especially when it gets wet

but coming from an engineering background messing about with high voltage switchgear all me life, stainless does make sense to me, as long as it's well made it just needs fitting n forgetting

I've even though of a slightly oversize stainless plate bonded to the transom with a marine ply plate fitted to that, best of both worlds but that may be a bit OTT

I think the trick is to varnish the life out of it before fitting.

On the basis the boat won't live in the water all the time....it'll dry out even if it does get wet?=(mine has done on the sr's I've had and streaker...).

if you start using oversize stainless plates it looks like you are covering up something nasty. use the Original system, looks better and with 5 coats of International yacht varnish looks superb
