Stripped off a bit of tube tonight to repair this crack.

The reason the previous repair didn't work is that the tube was never peeled back so the repair didn't span across the crack.Click image for larger version

Not as scary as it looks. This is the tube flange and the previous repair had held it together even though it hadn't been taken right to the edge of the crack... As the tube wasn't removed.

We've peeled the tube back and dished out and will glass front and back.

Here is the effort on the underside. Got to wait for this to go off before dishing out in the same way on the other side.

A very strong repair.Click image for larger version

Haven't posted about the transom work.

When we removed the stainless plating, we discovered some awful glass work hiding a price of hardwood to lift the transom.

This doesn't make sense as the transom measures 19-20" (the right dimension for long shaft engines).Click image for larger version

People get obsessed with the saddle sitting on the transom. Outboards are held in place by the bolts and the top of the saddle higher than the top of the transom is perfectly acceptable. It gives scope to drop the engine if required.

This also revealed a LOT of previous holes, and that the boat was originally rigged for twins (yes on a 535 !!).

This ties up with the odd drain bung. The original elephants trunk would have been in the middle but was replaced with a bung and moved to one side when the boat was converted for one engine.Click image for larger version

The transom is overall much better than we expected and not wet, not even remotely damp despite being stored outside and no forced drying either - so very solid.

All the small previous engine mounting holes etc. have been drilled out to remove silicone residue & epoxy filled.

The redundant trunk hole received the same treatment and will be glassed over internally too.

The remaining elephants trunk drain has been fully sealed around the exposed ply ready to refit.
