On the interior the transom has been refabricated and reinforced with an aluminum support brace. The remaining holes are for the engine mounts and bolts that fasten the marine plywood to the aluminum transom fastened in the interior.
Although I am keenly interested in suggestions on what materials or process can be used to make this right. Without knowing the extend, and cause of the holes, simply filling in with weld shall just delay the inevitable. Remove the temporary fasteners and blocks, then drill out each hole with a slightly bigger bit, all the way through the skin and new core.
I am really a novice DIY person without many of the skills required to repair the transom including welding. I should also mention the interior portion of the transom has been fabricated with an aluminum support brace welded to the aluminum runners along the floor length of the boat and vertically up the interior transom skin. Agreed the best option would be to replace the exterior transom skin with a new piece of aluminum.
That being said I 'think' my best option is to repair the holes from the outside transom skin.
Location: Eustis, FL A single thin skin of aluminum isn't going to support your engine, even with braces. Location: Eustis, FL Wow, some really serious Mickey Mouse work going on there.


When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Clockwork wrote:what does a transom replacement cost?Can't speak in terms of actual dollar figures, but I can tell you it will depend on how the job is done and what materials are used. Have to agree with Brian on glassing that joint but geeeezus how many are out like this, I'm thinkin' all of em'.
The fiberglass guys says it was much easier for Grady and the other manufacturers that finish off the seam with the trim, but it was a major source of water for my transom. This site is in no way sponsored by, affiliated with, or related to Grady-White Boats, Inc.
But looking at your transom you have so many, the better option is to replace the transom, that way you'll know what the thickness is and it shall last longer than any temp repair which you're attempting now. You'll still have a transom full of holes, but they'll be sealed reasonably well, you can do it in your driveway and if you don't drop a 150 HP engine on it, you'll likely be fine for a decade with minimum care and a few decades with reasonable care.
If you think this transom is just in need of some holes being patched, I've got nothing more I can tell you. There is a piece of aluminum INSIDE of the transom that runs across the top of the transom under the upper skin. Considering all the holes and the cutout, a lot of work, but something that can be done in your driveway.
Let this dry, until just barely tacky, then fill each hole with more of the thickened mixture.


Depending on how much the dealer whacks me, my cost is going to be between $5500 and $6K total.
Got rid of it, not really necessary to fight Walleyes on the North coast of America (Lake Erie). There were cracks in the top of the transom and the brass drain tubes were corroded and letting water into the core. It actually looked like it froze and expended out the top, which was out past the edge of the aluminum bracket. That is on the transom to disc, from the outside and from the disc to the transom on the inside. On the inside use your gloved finger, around the edges of the plywood and make a small fillet of the epoxy ooze out.
When you drill new holes for the engine mounts, bond them just like you did the other ones, making them at least 30% larger in diameter then the actual bolt shank clearance hole needs to be. They then used a piece of aluminum as a stiffiner across the transom and filled the uneven gaps with putty, which can see in the closeup picture.
