There are some considerations when adding transom layers: it adds overall length that needs to be considered and also the mating of the bottom panels that you're looking at. I shifted down and filled the gap, btw.markabernardi wrote: ↑Fri Oct 22, 2021 6:11 pm I added that third board for a thicker transom. as you can see, there is a bit of a gap between the hull and the stringer with the thicker transom. This results in the hull taking on concave shape. In order to remedy this i was thinking of trimming the angle off the transom so the hull sits flat. Other option would be to slide the transom vertically downwards relative to the stringer and then fill the resulting gap with epoxy. I like the idea of trimming that angle down so i have a nice solid, flush contact between the transom and the bottom hull panel. Thoughts?
I'm not in a position to elaborate at the moment but I'd be interested in hearing about any steps you have already considered to compensate. Trent and Cameron may have some thoughts as well.
