Location: Eustis, FL Epoxy working time is based on temperature and humidity, so I'd be guessing without this information, though you'll have more time in colder weather, but viscosity also goes up. Location: Maine Here are a couple pics of the old transom before I removed the pressure treated core.
Location: Maine Got a chance to work on the transom replacement project again this week. Location: Eustis, FL The amount 404 you'll need will depend on how thick you need it. Location: Clarkston, mi I also Have a 22' Holiday (1990) I was wondering how your transom replacement job went. Location: New Hampshire use something like Aluthane (an aluminum filled moisture cured urethane) as a primer on the pitted aluminum. PAR is 100% correct about those penetrating epoxies - they don't drive the water out or away.

When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
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.
You can see in the first pic how it has to slide in between the aluminum transom skin and those 2 brackets which are connected to the stringers. You mentioned 404, but I will also be adding the 403 into the mixture for the glueing process, correct?
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. If you'll be doing the gluing together part laying flat on a bench, then it doesn't need to be very thick at all, about the consistency of ketchup.

403 (cotton flock) improves bonding and toughness, 406 (silica) does the same though is better at bonding. 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.
On the other hand if you're installing it in the boat and gluing it together at the same time, then it should be the consistency of peanut butter and applied with a notched trowel.
They will not penetrate any more than the solvents in them would penetrate if you just poured the solvents on the surface. Also there are 2 additional transom pieces that sit on top of this piece, one on either side. 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.
The floor has also been taken up now, as I'm going to replace the vinyl flooring at the same time.
