I did it on my '89 40 Luhrs (same hull) for the same reasons you mentioned. There's not much to the transom, just the outer skin and inner liner. No coring etc. We cut the door opposite the hinge on an angle so it can't be pushed in. The transom inside we made up a flange of fiberglass on each side to support the transom wall. Also had to build a starboard step/threshold to go over the cockpit drain channel. It's definitely not as strong as original, but I'm also not concerned about taking large waves on the transom.
