as requested photo

1: one fully empty hull.
2: transom stripped

now dose any one know if I have to chop out the bit of the side of the hull that is holding in the last wee bit of plywood. ? I am looking to up the thickness of the new transom thinking of 3 lots of 12mm ply should do the trick and knees down to the hull?

Can't help much. But are you going to keep the flooding hull or take advantage and seal it up wail the floors out?

oh did not even think of keeping it flooding....

the plan i have in my head is

sealed up

stringers under the floor so i can get away with a thiner deck and under floor tank and a nice deep bow locker for the hook.

but i think getting it inside is a good plan now so I can start on the build bit.

Oi! I can go at a fair old whack (but that's best left alone)
Matt, sounds like a plan. With new tubes this should be one nice searider. Can't wait to see the photos' of it on the water in the first week of May

Hi,
you did the best , i think. The floor and transom will be repaired for long time , this way. I did the mistake, not to laminate in the knees from transom to the hull. When i had all closed again, i thought about this solution but it was too late. So i welded rods to be screwed from transom to floor from inox tubes.
Greetings from Germany
Mike
