Transom repair on my Valco
I am replacing my transom on my 14' Valco. The old original wood has been beat up over the years. I am going to get marine plywood but what do I use to seal the wood? Do I need to seal marine ply?Kill, Kill, Kill, FISH!!!!

I would glass it. a layer or two of 6oz on each side would be nice. UV cure resin is great to gives you lots working time and cures right every time in 5 minutes.

If you buy marine grade plywood, you are wasting your money.
Spend your time on detail and propper laminating.
Buy regular G1S ply and coat with polyester resin. And get ready for a
lot of work man. If you need advice, your welcome to PM. Good luck.

Make it out of 2 peices of outdoor 3/4 in plywood and glue them together and make it the same shape as the entire transom not like the original one i just did mine and its strong as hell and looks good varnished if you need pics i will send them

Probably what I'm going to be doing to mine in a few months. My transom brace is starting to tear (fairly common on these boats) since I added a 25hp 2 stroke, I've added a crude motor brace to the trailer and it hasn't torn further since.
