Mine ended up at about 10” and the boat drains perfectly.

Start out with a foot or more, tack it down and then as you lay out/down your laminations go right over the pipe and then forget about it for a while.  Later on you'll add water to the hull and find out where the low spot is now and grind the end of the pipe to that point, like you see on Michael's above.

Thank you Rick. I'll use melamine to secure the transom in place. If you think I can just glass over the hole in the transom, I'd rather do that than cut it out.

If you think about it, the hole is no different than the upper notched portion that you're going to fill. If the current transom is bowed or has so many holes from stuff being attached to it, it may be easier to cut the transom out, leaving a 2" lip along the sides and bottom. Then you'll start with a clean slate.  If you do this, make sure to put a board across the boat at the top edge to keep the hull in shape.
