Transom

Any reason why I can't prime the transom then spray with polyurethane 2K useing rattle cans.

The Avon SR did they come with a marine ply piece screwed on the back of the transom to stop the engine marking the gelcoat.

I've removed the ply so that I can glass bolt holes from earlier engine fits just wonder if it needs refitting?

Thanks John.

If it helps, here's a pic of the new one I put on mine in the autumn. I applied seven coats of varnish to the marine ply, lightly rubbing down between each coat. Many people will say that's over the top but to an ex sticks and string man that's nothing!

One coat of epoxy would be a good alternative in order to protect it, particularly the edges and the bolt/screw holes.

No offence - and it could just be me - but couldn't that have done with shifting to the left an inch or so?

No, just an observation amd curiosity. There must be a reason for it. I've seen much worse - on my boat for a start!

Aha! So you'd like to start discussing engine offset to counteract prop torque (and 18 stones sitting on an offset console) would you?

Let me dig out the table of offsets.....

Actually, Mr Caton will likely be along in a minute. He's looking forward to drilling some holes in his shiny new SR4 transom and has been burning the midnight oil with his abacus and chalk over the past couple of weeks, doing some calculations before he reaches for his drill.

I'll let him take over on the subject of offsets!
