  • 2T's 17 Standard Rebuid Rigging and nonskid

    It's been almost a year since I finished a '13 Whaler project and I was ready for a new project so after some searching and reading many project threads here I pulled the trigger. Spent the last couple of days after work and most of today getting her torn down. Deck, tank and foam gone. Stringers are next. To my surprise the transom is solid and dry. Is there a suitable way to raise the existing transom?

    Anyone have any insight or info on raising the existing transom to 25"?

      usually when the transoms are raised its during a complete transom rebuild. Then you get the structural integrity of a complete job. It can be added on to now but I dont think its as strong as a one piece unit...

        Yeah I wasn't sure if there was a method or new material that would allow the existing to be raised. I hate to rip out and go through the work of replacing a good solid transom but I just may. I tend to over do rather than under.

          I was able to get it pretty much cleaned out and expose the broken stringers which thanks to this site I looked for and weren't a surprise. The previous owner seemed surprised when I showed him a picture I took with my phone down in the bilge but I used it as a negotiating tool. Thanks CM?





          Seen this a lot here.

            I found this hole repair from the outside (smh) and new it would need attention. I plan on removing the stringer and the grinding it out from the inside, laying matt and then a few layers of 1808 in epoxy to bring it up before the new stringer goes in. I plan on flipping the boat and taking care of the bottom before the deck goes in. My question is should I clean up the bottom of the patch now before I lay glass on the inside?



            UGLY!

              Hit the inside and outside with the grinder and removed the crappy repair and stringer. The roving is all delaminating and will have to come out. I'd like to try and clean it up and rebuild it a side at a time.

                Please chime in with any pointers or advise. This is much farther than I had to go with my Whaler restoration.

                  Those stringers are impressively bad.

                          great job on the Whaler! the only advice I could offer is to remove all the bad glass and start re-building. I would think you would want the stringers done before you flip it over. Not sure about the bottom patch. I'd be inclined to remove it all now, so that when you flip it over you aren't grinding out part of your new repair, but you are above my pay grade.

                            Take a look at page two half way down. Had the same exact issues in the same location. You can do the bottom side once you flip it. Build the inside with 3-4 layers so you can dish to outside and get close to fair when you ad a layer on the outside. Happy to answer any questions. Jim
