Transom Tube End Cones

Transom Tube End Cones..

Any forum members ever thought of having these.

or even have some fitted.?

Are there any advantages or disadvantages in having a set of grp cones fitted.

I was thinking they may look o.k. with a hard nosed rib.

You mean having a hard stern either side of the transom instead of tubes?

So from the transom back the tube would be solid?

If the above is right I wouldn't fancy launching it off any decent size waves, the forces on the "hard tubes" would be quite alot.

Just the last foot or so as a tube narrows at the end

Wouldn't fancy it myself, you might as well have solid tubes all the way round as by the looks of it you'll only have a little bit in the middle.

It's just the last foot that is solid.
