How do you fix the knee to the transom? Screw/ bolt or adhesive/matt?
Or both?

We will bond the stringers down and then place matt between all the separate pieces of ply and then clamp it all together. That way the transom, knees and stringers will all be encapsulated in there own right, if any part ever get wet it won't affect anything else

Very informative. All these little items are missed in builds by so many.
