I have a 1961 Century Ski Dart that I am going to "personalize" into a double cockpit runabout. My question concerns the transom. As the photo (hopefully it will be below) shows, there is a substantial piece of mahogany along the bottom of the transom. I assume that it has to be there for something...possibly to alter the wake for skiers?
My plan is to remove the entire transom a do substantial remodeling.
