It reminded me of the meat pies that were sold during the war...50% horse and 50% chicken.

One horse mixed with one chicken.
Wow. You remember the war

Which war ?

Right enough about wars, we have had plenty of them on here already.

Nasher whilst they may be difficult to get out again if water gets into the transom because its not sealed then getting the plywood out is going to be even more of a pain. Me? I would sikaflex them in with a big dollop and be done with.

Jono
The supplier is supplying exactly what I've asked for, being a below decks componant.
Above deck spec is altogether different.
But both Stainless.

Do you leave your transom holes raw edged? Paint some resin down them with a water colour brush. It just takes 10mins. Sorted for ever.

Yep then cover bolts and washers in a big dollop of sealant, though I do accept lining the holes with a layer of resin would be good practise.

Wish I had, but as usual was in too much of a rush to get the engine on.

I've always sealed them up with something, just wondered what others used.

I use Sikaflex 221 rather than 291 though as it's more elastic (Think it's that way round!)
