Transom repair

Hi,

I have a problem with the tube coming away from the transom. It isn't a PVC to PVC repair as you will see from the photo.

The moulding has stayed on the tube no problem but has come away from the plastic transom.

Any help on method of repair or type of glue?

I have put a picture in as an attachment.

Thanks,

How old is the boat? Is the transom soft around that area? How is the other side? What about the floor connection to the tubes?

That is not going to be a fun repair. Most likely will require taking the dark grey piece completely off to clean and reglue it back into place...possibly on both sides.

Thank you for your reply.

The boat is about 10 years old and is in good condition. Hosed down, kept under cover etc...

The tubes and the transom are all good. The Transom is just hard white plastic the same as the hull. The hull to tubes join is perfect.

It has been repaired in the other side with what looks like some kind of epoxy and some screws to tack the grey molding in place.
