Re: DAYTRIPs Bertram 28 Strech

DT,

How high did you make you’re gunnels from the deck? I have t started in my boat but still thinking about it. I have most of the ideas planned out, I’m just waiting on getting a barn built so I don’t have to do it all outside.

Re: 1994 20’ Ocean Scout fuel tank replacement

I’ll let the more experienced guys help with the details but I think everyone here was an amateur the first time they replaced a transom. I think you can totally do it. I’m doing the same thing right now, my “supposed to be solid” project needs a new transom and at least one bulkhead in addition to ...

Re: Radon Transom Replacement

So this is the type of thread that happens over a weekend. Heard from the builder today and they are now doing fiberglass brackets/extensions. That makes me think I need to go that route.

Re: Radon Transom Replacement

Hmm, does a bracket change that equation?

A buddy had his Radon done with bracket and outboards, I guess I’ll have to go check that out a little closer

Re: Radon Transom Replacement

I’d like to put 300-325hp worth of outboards on it eventually. 2x150 or 175

Re: Radon Transom Replacement

Oh sorry I’ll look closer. I was on my phone and I thought they were flap disk looking. Yeah I hear you in the foam. I just know for the IO I need to mount a bunch of stuff. Oil reservoir, trim tab pump, hatch hinges, etc. Maybe I’ll have to mount some sacrificial mounting plates for stuff like. Ok,...

Re: Radon Transom Replacement

For the 1000th time. If I used foam in the transom instead of plywood could I do one layer of 1.5” of the Glass Reinforced Polyurethane transom foam?

Its 50% more cost but it might be worth it to me. Unfortunately the best reason is to tell people it wasn’t replaced with plywood.

Re: Radon Transom Replacement

Yep, familiar with flap wheels. I used them in welding and on my zodiac refurb. Like my neighbor says about his big tractor and flail mower, an instrument of destruction. Either destroying things around it or itself. So bill if materials. I’ve been catching up on reading transom replacement threads....

Re: Radon Transom Replacement

Yep, I’m multi tool guy. Just spent a few hours digging in the boat with it. I have a Fein, great tool. It looks like originally they had a layer of plywood and then an inside layer of fiberglass. Although didn’t some people sandwich a layer of fiberglass between two layers of plywood? It’s 1/2” out...

Re: Radon Transom Replacement

We think alike, I was going to build and outboard capable transom. I would imagine that 2x3/4” should be plenty, that’s almost 2” when done, but I’ll try to give them a call. I just went out and started digging and solved some of my confusion about the outside skin. It’s 1/2” thick of solid fibergla...
