    Transom/Stringer Replacement

    Hi,

    I intend on rebuilding the transom & probably some stringers in the near future on my 34 Scarab. I read a lot of previous threads & all prove most informative. I really want to stop rot once & for all & have decided that coosa looks to be the go. I can't seem to find any threads on a complete coosa project? Are there any pitfalls or things to watch out for going this way?? Does anyone have a complete instruction for this??

    Thanks in advance

    Tripps,

    Are you sure you want to use Seacast for this type of job on this size boat? I read in previous threads that it is good for smaller outboard rigs but doesn't have the strength for bigger sterndrive applications? Particularly, in stringers where big blocks will reside.

    This is a large boat

    and it needs to be rebuilt the correct way. If you need to contact me feel free. A good start would be a moisture meter to find where the moisture stops and you will know how far to go.

    Tripps,

    Are you going to use ply or going complete glass. If so, what is your methodology & raw material procedure? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Check out this thread and how he did his transom. Post 13 starts to show the work.

    Just wanted to share this pic...

    Yeah I know I've read that one. Doesn't give much insight as to the process. You'll notice I put in a reply there & I tried pming 38KV & as yet he hasn't replied. I really like his work & it's exactly what I want for my boat. Do you think he used Coosa or just glassed up many layers?
