Aluminum Transom Build Issues

for mine, I did add some weight with boxes and heavier material but it should be a battle tank.

Aluminum Transom Build Issues

You are doing a nice job! If you can get your hands on a sheet of .0125 at least, I used 3/16 on one I recently did with forward reaching knee braces over a pocket tunnel. Is much easier to weld being able to lean on thicker material heat-wise.

I think a 4 blade is going to make it dig in at the back. A 3 blade with 2 inches less pitch and more dia than the stock prop would turn faster and dig less. This way with the added weight in the front it won’t lift up. You will get less hole shot but good top speed. Thank you for the input, if it ...

I assume the wood is some sort of dampener for the keel , I replaced one rotted piece. The batteries were excellent compression for the foam. We wrapped plywood in shrink wrap poured the foam covered it then held it down tight with batteries. Working on front deck now , then paint , carpet , wiring ...

The remaining bulk head is coming out and getting replaced , so the seats will recess on either side of the live well. The front piece you see on the bow is the new trolling motor mount, we mis cut the dang this so we are making a filler should still work well and look good.

Progress! I am getting there. The fuel tank will be where the seats sit on top of, the livewell is behind the tank but not finished. https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img924/134/VWINYu.jpg https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img923/805/7ECv3o.jpg https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img922/440/MACtte.jpg https...
