    Default Transom wear

    I bought a used HB last week. Today I remove the motor, a honda 20. There are groves worn into the glass on the ouside of the transom. What do I do to stop any further damage. I'm think about bolting on a small piece of wood or teflon, any thoughts?

    I would glass or epoxy grooves repaint and have a aluminum transom plate made or buy a commercial one. You do not want any voids in the glass to the wood in the transom. Also check top of transom to see that no water has entered.

    I just use a piece of 1/8" scrap aluminum plate I got from a welding shop for free. I cut the piece big enough to cover the whole mount area and also put a piece about 6" high on the inside to protect from the screw seats also and used stainless bolts thru the transom to hold it in place.
    Somewhere along the way I have lost the ability to act politically correct. If you should find it, please feel free to keep it.
