Default Bravo Transom Template

I have posted this in the wanted section & also the Drive section with out much response so I thought I would try it here...

I am looking for a Bravo transom template (jig fixture) for the transom cutout... I would love to be able to either rent , or borrow one.... However if I have to buy one I will , but ifso I would love to find one from someone here on the board that has one they are willing to get rid of for a reasonable price....
Thanks in advance , Scott

Anybody ???

If I recall, doesn't Cobra rent them? Or was it BAM? I'd call those guys. Maybe Doller too.

I talked to randy at cobra & not trying to blast them but to be honest I could buy one for not much more than he wanted to rent it... I will check with Bam & Doller... Thanks

FWIW- you can make your own.

Take a transom gasket and use it as a stencil to make a duplicate out of masonite. Then buy a top-bearing router bit or if your router has the option, use the template guide, Screw the template to the transom (or use 3m double-sided foam tape) and do the cutout. If you have a decent sized plunge router and a set of helping hands, you can do the stud holes too.

Just talked with Doller & they said they didn't have any just the paper templates... I have a msg. in at Bam.

I thought about using a paper template to make one & I may have to do that if I can't find one.

Don't quote me exactly on this but last time I checked I believe it was somewhere in the 260-290 ballpark...

I got your email, had a crazy day today.

PN is 43693A2, and yes it is $268.42 on our site.

I'm embarrassed to say it has been so long since we cut a transom that we no longer have one, otherwise I would be happy to rent it for a nominal fee.
