From what I understand after talking to several experienced boat dealers/wholesalers and fiberglass shops the 1991-1998 260's that had the exhaust through the transom were likely to experience water intrusion that lead to the soaking of the transom. In some of the later boats you'll notice the exhaust was re-routed over the transom and the engine hatch was cut to accommodate the exhaust, these boats had less transom trouble. Fresh water is much harder on the transom then it comes to water intrusion too, I'm not sure why. I was told by 2 different custom boat builders fresh water water intrusion is worse than salt water intrusion, to me water intrusion is intrusion.
