extreme transom reinforcement Tornado 6.3

He Guys,

Wanted to share a little project with you
This weekend (en next : ) and..) we worked on reinforcement of the transom of my Tornado 6.3m.
With big help of Danny (who's building ribs professionally) we made the
transom 200hp e-tec proof.

part 2 :
laminating the foamcore knees.. which are about 4 times as big
as the tornado ones.. AND very important: on the right position.
As you can see, the knees are lamination on the hull instead of the deck

As you can see a box was made, connecting the old en knees, and putting
it all together on the deck. Filters, wiring etc. go neatly underneat it.

What I like is that if you get a big wave onboard it should just shoot out over the transom - as long as that square hole is blocked off!!!

Mervyn,

It's looking 200Hp Proof, but did you make it Mervyn Proof

Danny did a great job, do you need to come back next weekend?

It would have to, as the trunks are now inside the new locker

That "square hole" is an access hatch, no?

Nice job.

Oops.. forgot that..
No.. : )

The trunks are relocated to the left and rightside of the old knees.
Stainless steel right away through the transom..

The hole will stay and act as a garbage can.. :P )

Question-where's the air intake on a 200 etec?

I'm wondering if a wave shooting out over the stern won't swamp the engine if the hatch is blocked off.
At the moment I guess it'd still get rid of a large proportion of it?
