This is for completed projects, transom door on 93 2859 Classic .
Lay out area to cut checking for wires and hoses the cut was made leaving the nonskid section on the high step thru with a plan to insert that part for the bottom, this also will determine your width of the cut out. The cut was with a saws all, checking not to cut the fill hose and grounding wire. We went down to within 4to5 inches of the swim deck . We saved the inner section and outer section of the cut out and later joint the peaces to form the door, love that makes for a real door with hinges as used by Swans food trucks or some freezers is 2.5 inches thick. The sides where filled in with 0.25 inch scrap fiberglass then rounded and filled in with Fiberglass filled putty, sanded out and skimmed over with light polyester filler. The finish is in Gel coat to match and buff.

Add to door file.HI the question came up in stern walk through, yes the door swings out and folds flat an to the transom. On the inside I have a SS sliding dead bolt and there is a jam for the door to sit against, it is not in the way to move around on the platform. I now have a larger 36 inch deep platform finished this summer but still detailing. Thanks all. Fritz

You've got some serious skills there fritz - really nice work!!

Don't think I've seen a door swing out, but it certainly looks functional.

Thanks for posting.

Hey that looks great I just hope mine will come looking that good, and I like the idea of door swing out.
How long did it take to do the project.
What was Bayliner thinking when they didn't install walk through doors on all of there boats.
Again nice job!!!!!!! :)

IT was I think about a 2 week long project. By utilizing the outside section as part of the door with outside hinges, made it easy to swing out and lay against the transom. Since when fishing ore other activities of the platform, the door will be open. Skeeter3 if I remember you have fished in Ketchikan any info on dock space? And thank you.

Ok, I was just researching this the other day. Thinking about cutting a door after diving off the boat and having to flip legs over the transom. Quite dangerous with a tank on. This inspires me, but only to a certain extent.

Once you make a cut like that, there's no going back. Yours looks great. Not sure mine would look that good.

:ohmy:

Sean the awesome job you did on your swim platform tells me you would have no problem tackling a transom door.
P.s. did you have a chance to try out your new chart plotter app? Curious on how you liked it.

Fritz you're the MAN ! Nice work, I sure wish I had skills like that. I also lack the balls (can I say that.....) needed to take a sawzall to my transom.... I was told once that to do the job right "stiffners" of some kind are to be used on the inside when rebuilding. I was told, that is what the difference is when on some you can literally wiggle the transom back and forth with your hand while others remain solid. Is that something you did or made up for to increase the strength of the transom? I'm on a 32xx which was what the guy was referring to that told me so maybe it's different on your boat.

Thank you for the complement Fair Dinkum, to answer your questions #1 golf balls not required but it helps to be a bit nuts, I am. Stiffness on most larger Bayliner`s is OK there is plywood backing on the transom and under the gunnels, on the sides of the cut out put in ¾ marine plywood and perhaps on the bottom, then add the fiberglass and you must tab in the plywood on the inside as well. In my application I moved the top of the step over section, down to form the lower part of the step through, this had the non skid embedded so it looks factory. For the door the inner and outer part of the door where joint together, this enabled the door to maintain the hull lines, the door is 2 to 3 inches thick the hinges are similar to what one would see on Ice cream trucks, found in McMaster- Carr catalog. I hope that will get you started. I noted one other question and yes I will take a picture from the inside. At the time your ready to start I will post further info. P/S I posted a insruction blurp to join section`s of fiberglass together, take a look at that.
