Okay after yesterday I decided to glue only one sheet of ply from 15 mm thickness in, so now I have a transom existing of 3 sheets of 12 mm and one of 15 mm with those upstanding frames (see first pic) glued to the last full frame I thickness 18 mm I think the transom is now strong enough to let two elephants sit on it, hell if they want they can have s.e.x. on it as long they take it easy!Image

In the second pic you see the stations cut down to templates for the ply frames so first I’m gone make those a perfect fit before cutting the plywood, its because of all the glass and epoxy they have to be refitted nothing strange under the horizon Image

Peter, those extra layers in the transom will come in handy when/if Mr. pissed off blue marlin makes violent contact with your baby!

That's going to be one 'show boat' once you get done with her. Congrats! Happy to see that now there is a 'bateau' community in Curacao!

Btw..I have a good friend living over there...moved from Florida to Curacao and always wanted to build a boat. He's a top chef with his wife that does the pastries. If you come across him...tell him 'DrBones' says hello and to start building!

I like it Peter!

Where will your fish box/boxes be located?

Will there be enough room to have a fish box in the center with a live well on one side or the other. I thought you were running a bracket, if so, you should have the entire length of the transom for storage,baitwell, and fish boxes and such. Right :?: :doh:

Looking great,
Daniel

Correct but I'm gone loose some space for the fish/swim door, there is also space beneath the casting deck

Peter

I had my bait well in the transom of my Hatteras and had the drain in the bottom like yours but none at the top on the side like your set up shows. I used a plastic 2 1/4 through hull and put a removable pvc stand pipe with a cap on the top and drilled about 20 small holes just below the cap and just stuck it in the through hull. I had 3 different length pipes so I could change the water height. At the end of the day when done I just pull out the pipe and it drained out fast and all the scales and crap with it. I do all my bait tanks that way, it makes for fast easy clean out. works for me.
