I used a skill saw to cut almost through the wood and then used an air chisel to peel the wood off - makes short work out of it.

Little update and a couple more questions.

I got the wood out of the transom, I will be grinding down to good glass this evening when the heat mellows out. I have begun to dish out the holes for filling on the outside of the transom skin. I figured it would be good to plug all of the holes before I attempted installing the Coosaboard.





I've started modifying the console as well, I began by filling most of the holes, and removing rotten wood. I also cut the top portion of the console off for the purpose of extending the console vertically to house electronics and gauges.  It will also serve to raise the new windshield up considerably from the factory position. I removed the plywood divider that served as a separation between the inboard engine bay and the rest of the console, opening up a ton of room for storage.





I am making good headway but before I go any further, on the console's lower rear face I would like to add an access hatch that would be conducive to easy wiring and hardware access. I like the hinged two piece, lift-out hatches but am having trouble locating a source for one. I am flexible on the opening size so I should be able to utilize a non-custom unit. Any direction on that front would be very much appreciated.

Your progress looks great!

Some more progress on the 22-2

Since my last post, I have patched all the extra holes on the transom, and learned a bunch in the process.





Today was a huge day. A local supplier, RevChem Composites, stocked a ton of materials I needed for the rebuild. The delivery man showed up in a tractor trailer with my Coosa for the transom and deck, rolls of cloth and mat and a bucket of resin. They delivered everything for $15 and saved me 2 hours of driving.



I took my Bluewater 26 to my dad's shop with my transom drawings and he cut the transom cores out in a hurry.







I set them in place to see how they fit, and I think we are in business. I got the inside of the transom skin and the adjacent surfaces mostly ground down to good glass. I still have a little fine tuning to do before go-time, but it is getting really close. I am going to laminate the 3/4" core pieces together this evening, and start building some clamps for the final installation. As soon as weather permits, we should be glassing this thing in.  I plan on dishing out the rudder assembly holes and filling that at the same time as I am tabbing in the transom as it occupies the same real estate. The core is a little cocked to one side in the photo, but I gave it a shimmy and it sat right into place.



Slow but steady progress. I have a whole new respect for the rebuilds on this site. I had no idea how much grinding and dust making it took to make these things happen, and I still have a long, long way to go.

You'll learn something every time you work on it.  The CNC router looks sweet.

I got my rolling glass station competed last night, as well as my transom clamps. It looks like the weather is going to cooperate tonight and tomorrow so I am going to get the core stuck on the outside transom skin. Once this thing is in and cured, with good fillets on the transitions, I will be ready to attack the inner glass layer. This is a topic I am pretty confused on, as there is a huge range of transom rebuilds online. I am currently thinking four layers of 1708 over the top of the coosa with tabbing to the hull at 4" 8" and 12" overlapping starting with the 4" on the first layer down? I will be mounting an offshore style bracket with a deck on it, so I am thinking more is probably better, but would really appreciate recommendations.

Here is a good example of glass schedule - start reading here.  They are using good quality poly but the approach is what you're looking for.

Rick,

Thank you very much, that is exactly what I was looking for. We go the core stuck tonight. It really feels like I am making some headway now. It is going to be hard to focus at work tomorrow, I want to get the top layer on badly.

Monday night I had some help, and we got the inner transom layers laid down. On top of the Coosaboard, I did a layer of 3/4 mat and then 4 layers of 1708 (numbered them 1-3 with progressively longer tabs before deciding to put down #0 the just the size of the core without tabbing) . I read the thread you linked, Rick, but thought one more layer than those gents did certainly couldn't hurt. I got the rudder assembly holes, as well as the shaft strut holes, plugged and covered.




Its some good solid headway before I covered the hull for the winter. The weather here has officially turned and yesterday the rainy season started with some attitude. The next step is to do some garage work space tuning, making room to work on sub-assemblies, hatch doors and and the console until sunny days return.
