Thatīs absolute true! If the holes, of the bolts are under the water line,
the moisture/ wetness must be gone deep into the plywood.
If they are above, there is a chance to let the transom dry out during
the winter time. May be drill some more holes yust trough the GRP,
to let it dry better.
Lifetime of transom plywood is reduced by getting wet (and dry out)
anyway. Itīs yust a question of time, when a major repair has to
be done, right now, or later.
I would let some professional have a look after your transom. He
must know whatīs the best to do right now
