and started to take the inside skin off the transom to find total destruction to it. here are some signs that told me that the transom was shot. water was pouring out the bracket hole and trim tab screws.

Did they build up the inside of the outer skin to give strength to the patch? If not I would add a couple layers of 1700 biax to the inside before I put the transom core back in. You may want to feather 4" on either side of the seam on the outside and add a layer of biax tape for good measure and then fair the repair to match the rest of the outer skin. That's what I had to do on my rebuild when I closed in the transom.
