Just had a ping pong ball auto drain fitted (supplementing an elephant trunk)
and the guy who did it said the transom was 'wet internally' so he couldn't glass the hole to seal it. He used Sikaflex instead.
Q1. Is cured Sikaflex a decent seal?
Q2. I'm told the transom isn't rotten and is not likely to fail any time soon. It's got me worried though - How will I know when it becomes dangerous? No facetious answers please...
Q3. Can I do any DIY remedial action on the transom?- painting, sikaflexing around the steel outboard mounts etc? Any one else had this happen? The boat has not been in the water for 3 months, so it's about as dry as it'll ever be.
