Transom frame Ver. 2.0
New transom cheeks are laminated with 3M5200 and cut out on the band saw. Since much of the work with the first pair was to trace accurate templates from the original, that task with the replacements was not bad. Just to make sure you get the continuous changing outside angle correct.
The new laminated pair. It will be very hard to notice the "glue" line when painted.
The finished transom frame, sealed with CPES and assembled with 3M5200.
