is this bad?

Currently re-replacing the transom on my ebay rib purchase.

I knew it was dodgy but what is particularly special is that the missing hose on the drain between the inside and outside skins of the transom, I haven't removed anything form that area in the pictures, the water has been draining out of the cockpit directly into the inside of the transom....

Well you already know its not good. But where on the good to bad spectrum is a bit unclear...

Hard to see what you've got there - would be helpful to have a zoomed out shot of the whole boat..

The green piece of garden hose goes where?

Whats the material under the hose? (other than crud!) is it GRP or wood? Is it sound?

Its fairly academic now as its all been removed, both inner and outer skins were irretrievable, and the transom was already being replaced before I saw this gem, just posted for your amusement really.

The garden hose used to go between the fittings on the inner and outer skins, I think its original. It seems that when the first transom replacement was done (bodged) the hose disintegrated and they just left a void in the ply completely unsealed.

The inner and outer skins have been completely removed since these photos, unfortunately the stringers are rotten too, so will need partial or complete replacement.

I'm roughly following the west system guide to replace it, by gluing the new core into place with 404 filler, then fabric on top.

Not entirely sure what to do about the stringers yet, replace them entirely or just the rotten bit (if possible)? and attach them before or after laminating the core?

I think that's what is normally referred to as "falling well inside the fcuked category" Good luck & keep us up to date. Personally, I would be savage with removing anything that wasn't remotely solid. You've done the hard bit by taking the grinder to it & making a start, you might as well make a job of it now.

Rotten bits removed.... hmm not much left. You can see the replacement deck that someone fitted which is completely untreated on the bottom, it's ok at the moment but I guess that has to go too?
