Jabe sorry to hear, as you found out the hard way epoxy has no UV protection. Easy fix luckily.

Epoxy must have a varnish applied over top of it with sun exposure.

I did epoxy clear coat yes, there are pros and cons of coarse like anything, seems to be fine with vertical surfaces, transom seems to be holding up, unfortunatly I have a couple places that are flat on the horizontal and I believe UV has played a part in causing faults, I should have applied a UV protective coat on these, lesson learned

The wider lower transom board behind the knee wouldn't hurt anything for sure, being these were built with only a single, the extra support I think would be welcomed

very nice, thanks.

Did you use epoxy on the wood? I'm thinking of making the lower, interior piece, wider to match the exterior.

With out removing knee brace you will have to cut it, and then to replace it the bottom outside corners need to be radiused to shorten the lenght, it's tricky but I beleive I did a 3" radius and that let me able to slide the new one in

I will look see if I saved any pics

It's been a while but found some time to start on the transom of Tin Cup (Ranger III). Any tricks to remove the inside board? I've removed the corner braces. All hardware to the wood has been removed. I tried moving the wood around but not able to clear the center brace.

Yes as long as the screws holding the junction box to the wood don't make any contact with the aluminum hull.

Boatboy, thanks for that reminder.

Would mounting the junction box on a wood panel suffice?
