Marolina,
That is impressive. Do you have a project you will be using them on? I'm curious as to how much cutting, glassing, and fairing will be required.
Thanks,

These were requested by a company that sells one off custom cold molded boats. they work out very nice so for what they use them for its a very clean simple install.

in the retro fit world you will have to have access to the inside of your transom to glass over the inside, I would use only epoxy resin and thicken it up to bond it them sand/grind the surrounding areas glass and fair as needed paint and you are goo to go!

I hope to add some images soon!

I see you are from Brielle, I was just turned on to a good book called Shadow Divers

Awesome book! I grew up not two blocks from where the Seeker was docked. Had many an underage drink in The "Horrible" Inn. Enjoy the read.
