looks like a fair bit of work required to sort the transom, worth the effort though

i have desided to fix and sell this searider and keep my original project boat so over summer i develped a very bowed transom which dident help by keeping to use the boat any how it somehow managed to keep the engine attached i removed the engine and reveled the severity of the issue after consulting some colegues the only way to do it properly was to strip it back and build an new transom i got no shots of the state of the bow or removing the engine but i started snapping the transom work so this took me a afternoon to complete
