Cracked Transom

Something to worry about, or keep on until they get worse?

worth looking at for sure... What is the transom material? is it wood? It would be good to find out why it's cracking the way it is... does it have something to do with that box and the glass connection being weak there, or is it actually the transom cracking.. that is the question.

Hate to say it but that looks like a serious problem. The gel coat is cracking because whatever is inside (wood or composite) is no longer supporting the motor properly. Unfortunately I have some experience with this type of issue..... You risk losing your motor if you keep running it that way (which is also a safety hazard).

You'll lose your outboard eventually with that. It needs to be fixed asap.

Arjay 6011 ceramic pourable transom compound

One possible solution if you find it necessary.


A friend had problems with his transom. He had to keep pulling up on his motor transom bolts. You could see that they were sinking in. He had a guy pull the motor, hog out all of the wood, and use the pourable fill that cures hard to fix it. The guy then reinstalled the motor and controls. It took a week and cost less than $2,000. You can't tell he had any repairs made.

The material comes in a 5 gal pail. You can google and get info.

No wood at all on this boat, I’m guessing just soft fiberglass, I’ve heard of similar problems on this hull... Gulf Coast Bay Kat

If it has the black foam type material inside and/or between the fiberglass, that stuff is very brittle and will crack and let go...
