OK yall, I'm new here but I'm a life long boater and have quite a few projects under my belt. This is my first Bayliner. I got it dirt cheap, but have come to love it. The lines are timeless. The construction is pretty good, and they are easy to work on and maintain.

I got it cheap because the transom was rotten and it was leaking pretty bad, so I embarked on this project that seems to have no end. But I love it! It was scratched up pretty bad and I didn't really like the blue/white color combo (purists, please forgive me). I'll attach a few pics of my progress so far. I mean if I can figure out this forum... lol.

OK, I uploaded a few pics of the transom project.. but nothing showed up.
I'll have to study this forum a little more. Dang, I design websites and I can't figure this out! Oh well, it's late and I'm tired.

I'm doing all this work myself. Fortunately, my best friend owns a marina, but it's still not something most people would undertake. I mean, I'm a graphic designer by trade, but I've done like 6 boats and 5 car projects. When you've been married this long, you need hobbies!

Wake me when you have images available. :kidding


Hey, welcome to the BOC and the CoTR (club of transom rebuilders). I've done 5 or 6 of them. Several others have done this type of work also..... so if you need any advice, there are at least several of us here who have taken on this task.
I will say..... there are no "short cuts" for transom and stringer work..... this is a very important area of the hull, as I'm sure you know.

When you do get some images hosted and linked to, we'll be able to see what you are up against.

Maybe include some info on your engine/drive package and hull year model, etc.
