Rebuild your transom (and more) with the best technical support and materials.
The technical support, material specifications and advice is free for our customers. We will propose material types and quantities: core, resin, fiberglass type and number of layers up to the fairing and paint.
The technical support is given by or under the direct supervision of a yacht designer. J. Mertens worked in the boat building industry for 35+ years. As engineering manager of Pursuit Sport Fishing boats (and other companies), he designed and supervised the building of hundreds of boats with plywood transoms, soles and stringers and is aware of the problems that may develop with those parts.
Hundreds of our customers have successfully rebuild their boats with our materials and our help. The rebuilt boats are stronger and better than when they came of the production line: better materials, better engineering.
Our web site is full of information and pictures. Start with this link where we show a complete rebuild of a typical 22' boat, an Aquasport 22'.
It is rarely necessary to replace all those parts and often, we can save the outside transom skin like in this example of a Grady White transom:
This web page gives a good overview of our method.
How to proceed?
The first step is to evaluate the need for repair. In some cases, a partial repair is possible. In many cases, the complete transom or sole has to to be replaced. Sometimes the stringers must be repaired.
Post a brief description of your repair needs here. It is free and we usually reply within a few hours.

We will discuss what needs to be done and specify the type of materials and quantities .
On the same forum, you can read about other rebuilding projects and see pictures. We also have tutorials about the use of our materials including short YouTube videos. http://boatbuildercentral.com/howto.php
