the tanis all composite lifetime transom repair. a common but unfortunate reality in fiberglass boats is the rotten transom dilemma, if your transom is suffering from a rotten wood core you are left with three obvious choices: discontinue using the boat and sell the motor and other components.

boat is rated to a 140 hp motor but transom is failing with 115 yamaha 4stroke. already replaced the transom about 15 years ago, so figuring i need to beef it up a bit. was considering taking a piece of 1 ply and coating it with fiberglass. the splash tray is screwed to the inside of the transom and definitely adds some structural support.
coosa composites manufactures structural panels made of high-density, polyurethane foam reinforced with layers of fiberglass. the no-rot and light-weight advantages of high density foam combined with the structural properties of fiberglass make coosa panels an excellent replacement for wood and other traditional core materials.

i know lund is offering an optional composite floor and transom in their new boats i.e. alaskan . i've been told material is polyethene. anyone know about polyethene's properties for use in floor and transom?
anyone know what year lund went to all composite transoms in the 1875 pro guides? it should find a pdf of the catalog for that year. if you scroll down to the 1875 pro guide it mentions the composite transom. angler ii. participant. posts: 238. january 21, 2019 at 10:08 pm . they switched mid-late 2017. my boat was a 2017 and did
it is also my opinion that the increasing cost of wood and the marketability of "no wood construction" will demand the perfection of the technology and the invention of new and better materials. having wood in a boat if it is properly protected does not mean you are dealing with an inferior boat any more than a decal that says composite means
pros for this type of construction are its immense strength but lightweight qualities, which mean a boat that typically weighs 20,000 pounds can be constructed to weigh 12,000 pounds. the dback is the cost of the composite materials from which this type of boat is built, which can be quite high.
in addition, the failure mode shows elastic yielding before failure. this makes the carbonbond pourable transom compound material an excellent choice for critical applications such as coring transoms on power boat hulls. there are three methods of employing the carbonbond pourable transom compound material as a transom core:
go with a full composite transom board. this will be the last transom board that you every have to put into your boat. don't use wood - it will just be a matter of time until it will rot and it will have to be replaced again.

coosa board coosa composite board boat outfitters. it is truly the premier decking and transom material in the marine industry. there is a reason that boat builders put "certified coosa board" decals on their transom
in terms of performance, a cored or sandwich composite is better than a solid composite with respect to strength-to-weight ratio. cored composites yield lighter, faster and more fuel-efficient boats. do not be afraid of buying a new boat made with core materials, but do your homework in selecting your brand and what is behind it.
1995 ranger 487 composite transom repair. i dont know the history of ranger boats, but i think after a certain year they were all made with composite boards or a comparable material, just not wood. nor do i research other boat manufacturers to find out what they use and how theyre made.

the transom of a power boat is the strongest part of the vessel. it has to transmit the full power of the engine to the rest of the hull, as well as carry the pounding of the hull back to the engine. the great forces exerted between the engine and the hull come to a focus at the transom.
the materials found in seacast are based on the same ones found in the rest of the boat and the hull. making your transom repair last the lifetime of your boat. seacast acts and responds like wood but is a superior material.
having done all this work, and having much to do to reinstall new transom material, i pose the following question to the gurus here: what is the absolute best transom material to use as a replacement? marine plywood vs. monolithic lumber vs. some kind of composite vs. foam core? and why? thanks for your help carl
re: fiberglass or composite materials? i think fiberglass is still considered a "composite" material. i think what you may be referencing and what the manufacturer's literature is referencing is the use of composite instead of wood in the transom, stringers, and maybe even the deck.

if you are planning to repaint the entire boat, simply cut around the corners of the transom. when you install new fiberglass, it will wrap around the corner of the transom and you will need to fair the topsides and transom. the boat shown here was cut three inches in from the edge of the transom to preserve the freshly painted hull sides.
