    Transom Thickness-gctid804797

    Approximately how thick is the transom on a (specifically Avanti 2955) cruiser?

    Fastening things such as switches etc. with screws on the inside of the transom. I'd hate to poke through or spiderweb the outside gel coat.

    Stern drive boat, 2" minimum, 2 1/4" maximum at the drive area, likely at least 1" all over the transom

        Great. That's a little thicker than I thought.

          Agree with this on a sterndrives boat. It can step down to a thinner layup out beond the transom shield area. Mine was as thin as 3/4-7/8 on the outboard upper areas of the transom.
