(Moriches, NY USA)
I have a wooden sailboat with a cracked transom.
I have two choices: 1) remove the old transom and replace it;
2) patch the original transom with fiberglass/epoxy.
I would like to avoid doing option #2 because that would cover the beautiful varnished wood.
If I perform option #1, I am afraid that the planks will collapse without the transom shape to hold it together.
But then I would be replacing a new hunk of transom wood which would look a lot better when all finished and varnished.
My problem is that I have no experience replacing a transom.
Any advise, books, articles, or methods would be helpful.
