Default Apache Skout transom

major setback todayI found the entire transom needs to be replaced because of rot.... I've never had to replace a transom before so this should be fun my only concern is how do I cut the stringers out and then reattach them.

Any pics on the inside transom wall slog with any battery shelves and how the stringers meet up to the transom. The layout will drive the direction you take. Let's see how it looks...

TC9ball, If there is anyone who knows how to repair that transom, it's J-Bonz. Put up some photos and trust in his engineering expertise, it will probably end up stronger than the original.....

Here's a couple Pic's. I marked one picture with the Stringers where I've been told is a "Good Place too cut" Before I do make the cut I want to be sure I do it correctly, I hate making more work for myself cause I messed something up.

Some more Pic's. I had power tools in my hand and I was not a happy camper when I found out how bad the Rot was, I gently put down the Power tools and backed off. Then I had a beer! or 2, or 3... IDK how many...lol
