Half an inch deeper should actually help lift the bow, as long as the prop is dialed in correctly.

Maybe pictures of the whole project would have been usefull to show the stages but the pics posted sure do look like it was patched and the thickness once the transom is cut out appears to be about two inches, so the old transom must have been REALLY thin...not a boat I'd want to buy to begin with.
Not trying to start anything here but the extra pictures would have been really helpful.
On mine, pictured above, we cut out the hole for the transom assy before we glassed the wood in so that we could use c-clamps as well as various jacks and boards, makes sure that everything is bonded immediately around the assy. They may have used the bolt holes for the same purpose

OK, let's start with the necessary disclainer:
"This boat is not an Apache, nor was it ever an Apache. As far as I know, no Apache or other Native American tribesmen have ridden on this boat. This boat was once trailered not far behind a truck pulling an Apache, and an Apache owner once enjoyed riding in this boat when his Apache was broke."
There, now that that's out of the way, here's a picture of the original transom, cut to house the transmissions used for the pulsedrive. The transom is 2" thick and made from a microlaminate South American hardwood that I forgot the name of.
