    Transom repair

    Morning, I have a 1702 capri cuddy with a 70hp force outboard. I need to replace the transom. I saw on another bayliner video, not a 1702, that the transom was just the middle section and the repair was done down through the top sill under the engine. The rotten wood was replaced with a product called seacast. Does anyone know about this or simialar products and would it work for me?

    I've not heard of it. There is a product called coosa which I may have misspelled. If you want to see some good DIY videos on the topic see boatworkstoday.com.

      Welcome! Please add some location stuff to your profile. It really helps everyone identify local to you resources. There may be members nearby who would enjoy some social distanced boat talking. The Admiral has to factor in BOC members dropping by while I’m at the boat to my estimated time at the boat.
      I’ve seen sea cast videos on YouTube, and like everything else, it’s all in the preparation. Going to a rot resistant product like this, or using a product like Coosa is the wise choice, but it’s not cheap. Take a look at “Boatworks Today” on YouTube. He works with all sorts of reinforcement and repair solutions.

        No personal experience with the seacast method but I’ve also seen the seacast videos. Basically you hog out the rotten core material from the top edge and pour in the seacast epoxy. It’d be important to maintain the shape and thickness of the transom area while doing so.

          A guy with the same boat as I (89 Trophy 2159) redid his with Seacast. His story is on iboats, 99 pages long.
          i replaced my transom plywood with Coosaboard. Very easy to work with, cuts, shapes, drills easier than wood, yet it is lighter, stronger, smoother, is virtually waterproof and adheres well to epoxy. But not cheap. Depending on size required you can buy it as 8x4 sheet, or smaller pieces. So measure twice, order once.
