Got two pieces of 3/4" cut and fitted today. Tomorrow I am going to resin the inside sides of both pieces with two coats of resin second coat I will be putting glass in between and sticking them together on the floor with weights on them. Hoping to get this done so I can glass the top back and lower outside areas that won't touch the transom also.

a suggestion. put them in place, lined up properly. drill a couple of mounting holes where there are already holes in actual transom. outdrive mount and small ones around exhaust for instance. use them as alignment-clamp points while both curing the sandwich and during installation.

Had to take one weekend off to go to a college football game with our daughter as she is a senior this year, finally getting back on this. just a few pictures. got this tall thick transom finally put together out of the boat glassed two halves together and then glassed the back area of the tall transom that wont touch the skin of the boat got lower weep holes drilled and made for drain areas of swim platform that was never done when boat was built. Core bonded this in over the weekend old transom was not double thick all the way out on the last one it was just thick in the center. now I need to sand and grind areas and clean again. Then put a coat of resin on tonight. Hoping this weekend to start putting on the 2 layers of 1708 and start tabbing in all around the edges and sides. Still not sure exactly how I am going to fill in area around drain plug mouse hole area yet. My oil pan has a drain hose so I need to leave enough to get through a larger type brass drain plug area.

you have plenty of room around the mouse hole to glass it.
as example, my drain holes are 2 1/8 dia. they get a hot coat of resin, then 1708, i use an inspection mirror to verify it's wetted out.
a few days later i scuff and brush 610 all around the hole and the bottom especially.
610 is 2 part thick epoxy in a tube that fits your caulk gun. west marine.
you could do the weep holes from the swim step the same way.
this pic was taken while wet so before the 610 finish.

my overboard drain plug has no mouse hole, it was just soaked w/ resin.
i cleaned it out and used the 610 trick. the transom is dry but i needed to be sure,

I mouse-holed my transom drain hole. I just cut a bunch of layers of glass and built it up until it was close to even with the wood. It was a bunch of little pieces of glass!

I think I would probably just glass around the perimeter of the mouse-hole, let it set up, then build up the drainplug area to about 1/2" or so with a few layer of glass. That way when you go to install the threaded part of the drain plug, you can through bolt it instead of screwing it in.
