AlienRocker Posted September 14, 2022 Report Share Posted September 14, 2022 (edited) Good evening, I'm a long time fan. Found this forum awhile back when I came across a 19900 r2160 here in Miami. Because of the comments of many here especially 2-N-tow I decided to buy it. It's a great boat for what I'm hoping to do with it, sandbar, fishing, scuba and hopefully some crab pots too. Unfortunately due to circumstances I let it sit for longer than she should have but I'm finally putting in the time, money and love. Was hoping I could ask everyone for their opinion, one of the members mentioned she's a perfect candidate for a bracket and closing up the transom. Mine is currently rotted and am looking to completely repair it. Currently the plan is with coosa board, stainless metal plates and fill empty cavities with A&B foam then after it's all fiberglassed up to add metal backing plates where the motor mounts on both sides. I'm waiting for a reply on how much on top of the 5,500 (which includes wet/dry sand and buff and wax the hull to make up for some of the fees) they would need to close it up, add a bracket, longer cables and everything else. If it's too expensive and I'm thinking of adding splashguards that may or may not open outwards freely if i take on alot of water to allow it to flow out. Or maybe have them fabricate some kind of enclosure for the motor well. If I opt not to close it up how safe does everyone think it is when out drifting? I appreciate everyone's patience with the long background. I plan on making the rebuild of this boat my hobby to hopefully and look forward to the work. Have a background on working on boats but mostly detailing and small repairs and switch outs of minor things onboard.
