View Full Version : Transom repair
04-11-2010, 10:37 PM
I am just starting repairing my first wood boat. I have a 1958 Thompson and it is in pretty good shape, but there is a long split in the transom, about 1/8" Do I just leave it as is and it will swell up, or does it require some kind of fix?

Picture please. You may want to spline it, depending. An eighth of an inch is a good bit of separation. A picture is best and will get you some fast and accurate responses. If there's no picture, can you tell us if it is along a plank seam or an actual "split" in one plank?
