(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.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
