protect transom

what's the best way to protect the transom from cracks of the weight of the engine? I've seen some transoms attached with RVS tubes on the floor...

You certainly would if you had seen Zebidee recently. The new owner has had , on our recomendation, a stainless steel transom plate and two nicely machined spreader plates. All polished looks the business!

I'll get one of the techno weenies ( that wud be Jimbo) that visit the unit to take a photo and publish it as it is a proper solution. But also an equally effective job can be done with a 1/4 inch ali plate

I am up with most TLA's but what is RVS

Like this one I made up for my Ocean, matched on the inside with a 6mm plate.

Oh, excuse the state of the rest of the transom in this pic, its had all the anti-foul stripped off now and is awaiting paint etc.

That's a pretty chunk of metal you've got there Nasher. What is it-stainless or ally?I can't see properly from the pic.


On the same tack, what are you guys paying for marine ply?

Just found a supplier for 18mm standard size sheets@ 30 per sheet-half the price of builders merchants.

Its 15mm Ally.

I needed to convert the transom to take the UL Shaft Suzi I picked up cheap.

The transom had a cut-out in it to take a Long shaft outboard.

I cut a piece of 2' x 4' ally box to go in the cut out, bolted the 15mm plate to the outside of the transom with the bolts well spread out away from the original cut-out, then put a similar sized sheet of 6mm Ally plate on the inside all bedded down in epoxy.

Its now a very strong sandwich.

Nasher.

Dave

Do you think I'd ever consider paying somebody to do something I can do myself?

I Don't take kindly to a cheap suggestions to try and drum up business.
Thought you were better than that.
