Transom well

Anyone know where I could get a well made up. My transom has been butchered and is running a long shaft motor at 21 3/4". With the 200 on it I fear it may be too low especially with divers onboard.

I have a drain sump in the boat but want something to catch any water coming in and either send it back out (thought the one that was on there stoppped the engine from trimming up!!) or just make sure it stays in the sump and gets bilged out and doesn't keep flooding the whole boat floor.

Thanks

Tue, all may not be lost. the standard transom on a 6.45 ribtec is too low and mine slopped water in. However I beleive yours is ex jet and therefore presumably has a flat planning pad under the stern. this means your 21" will start much higher and the top of the transom should end up with a half decent clearance from the water level.

Think what you need to do is glass back in the top of the transom by using a piece of formica to lay the gelcoat against followed by the GRP and marine ply. At some point it will need re-inforcing with transom supports to take 200 hp and you will probably want to do 2 sheets of s/s on both sides of the transom.

Had. At some point when it was converted to outboard the planing pad was filled in. All that remains are a few lines in the gel coat where it was. This means the 21" is from the keel of the boat

Oh, yuk! hmm. Is that 5" of solid GRP then or did they cut the planning pad out and re-glass the deep v shape back in ?
