    If interested I can recommend a guy in Chesapeake Va , not all that far from you. He has done some work on my boat.

        I am little confused. If these floatation brackets are made from metal and powder coated. Why do they cost 3k. I am a little bit of a metal person. I can build car trailer for that cost.

          If you read my post above I mentioned Mako and Armstrong could not come to terms, in the interim some dealers put on this non floatation Armstrong bracket.

          You need to determine if the transom is ok or needs replacing. Look at the transom from the bilge, are the washers/bolts pulling in? Look for cracks or separation everywhere. I have heard brackets for twins can get upwards of 6K. I do know of a guy does frequent CM who build his own and did a great job, he might be willing to work with you.

              Generally brackets are custom made to fit your boat, matching the dead rise, etc. Like I mentioned, determine if the transom is ok and why the bracket is backing off. If all it needs is to be tightened up i'd do that and test drive the boat looking at its attitude at rest and performance. If the transom is why the bracket is backing off it needs to be replaced before you do anything else as it is not a safe boat to operate.

                Well it's official. I now own a Big project m248 cc. That's the good news. Now for the bad. The transom is going to need work.... Thanks Jon for coming over to take a look. Now need to find someone that can either help/guide or do a new transom

                  Was nice chatting / shooting the shit with you yesterday Keith! Even though it seems like a new transom and bracket are in order I still think it's worthy of the effort and would fit your use great. Do some research online about pourable transoms (e.g. arjay) and you might decide it's a job you want to tackle yourself...based on the projects you showed me yesterday you should have no problem with this!

                  I'm also up to help some too as I will eventually have to do the transom on my 221b (hopefully later vs sooner). Give me a ring once you decide your path.

                    Congrats on the boat. I am a CC guy, but have always liked the 248 and even considered the one linked below years ago. The last pic in the 1st post is my favorite; it shows the huge cockpit and that it is a true walk-around. Many boats claim to be a walk-around but don't really have any room.

                      For professional help you could take it to Coastal Fiberglass, they have done work for me

                      https://coastalfiberglassllc.com/

                      If you are wanting to do it yourself there are many threads on here that document the work, you could search for Dmackey 's thread on it where he poured his transom.
