Default transom ?

Replacing transom on my Pantera. I have plenty of glass experience and do everything old school still. Was planning on a good marine ply and ve resin. Buddy of mine trying to talk me into using epoxy and coosa board. My question is, is coosa worth the extra coin?

Not an expert but for what it is worth, Velocity used coosa board in the transom on the VR-1 and other models.

Is your transom 2.75" thick?

What I was told, is that if you're going to run modest to big power you have to use plywood for the transom and engine stringers. Anywhere else you can use Coosa. I'm about to glass in my new transom, and I'm using 3 layers of 1/2 marine ply, with a layer of 24 oz woven roving in sandwiched between. Then to actually bond it to the boat, Core Bond B70 and 1708 glass.

If you asking about the VR - 1 I don't know what the thickness is. I can't measure as she is in hibernation.
