In our shop currently is a great little Chris Craft Kit Boat, built in 1954. Unfortunately the old plywood transom had soaked up lots of water over the years and was completely rotten out.
We removed the old transom and proceeded to clean up the mating surfaces on the hull, making them ready for the new transom. We then made up a new transom plank from six pieces of 1/2″ mahogany, laminated in an interlocking fashion, making for a very durable laminate more than adequate for supporting the outboard engine. The piece was then faired, cut and fit, sealed with epoxy sealer and has been installed into place.
We look forward to completing this project so the customer and her family can once again enjoy this fun little boat!
