Transom...

I want to reinforce the transom on my quicksilver430hd xs, it has a aluminium floor with a plastic coated marine ply transom, the plan is to have two turn buckles which will be connected to both the floor and to the transom, the idea is that the floor will help support the transom if its put under excess pressure, i have seen this during a visit to the london boat show. what do ye think? does anyone have any better ideas or has anyone seen other ways it has been done, Thanks guys!!

pictures of the transom are to follow...

Just inflate your sib to it's correct working pressure, use a manometer, adjust correct trim angle and don't over power, use max engine as specified on the sib plate. If all 4 issues are followed, won't need any additonal transom fittings or reinforcements.

Happy Boating

[/QUOTE] Pictures of the Transom

This is a nice sib floor/transom add on locking bars, will help tight better the floor to the transom area avoiding unwanted lateral floor movements that happens now and then, keep in mind that after the side joinners ends you don't have anything to tie the fllor corners to, it's almost on the air and with time and water movements will move laterally not being sib centered as when it was first assembled.

Have other modifications to the side joinners rest ends, as soon as the pics are done will post so Ribneters have a better " long live the sib"

Happy Boating

New 40 hp mariner

Hi Andrew, just wondering how does the new engine suit your boat. how does the boat handle with the extra 25 hp.
