  1. That is exactly what I did. I had a new one fabricated from my old one.
  2. I may just have 2 new ones milled locally. I have a couple leads. I knew it would be best to impossible lol, never hurts to ask.
  3. Where can I find a set of teak coverboards for my 1978 23’ CC? I guess I could have a set milled, but wondering if there is a set out there?
  4. Hey there. My starboard coverboard has developed some serious stress fracturing and I think I can stop it from getting worse with a few bolts and braces. BUT Id like to replace both coverboards. Any suggestions? I’m in South Jersey.
  5. I’d also like to build up my transom an extra 3-5 inches, if possible. I’ll go back to my thread at the appropriate time. Good luck with your job here, it looks like you know what you’re doing which is more than I can say for myself.
  6. All very interesting and helpful. I’m going to be in the same boat so to speak. I had a verbal quote of 6k plus from a reputable local fiberglass shop. I have an inquiry into another shop and I’m waiting to here back, although he sounded too busy to take this on over the winter. Of course, there is my boat guy too, I’m just not sure if he is up to the task of a transom rebuild this winter. Or his cost.
  7. There is a site online....you can google Robalo windshields or variants of it. I was looking at it before. It may be in Arizona, but I might be confusing it with another company. I needed a new windshield on my ‘78 CC and this site had all model years posted...except for....1978. If you pick your year and color of windshield they already have them spec’d out to fit. i didn’t use the company because I was able to take my existing windshield to a local glass company and they fabricated a new plexiglass one for $450 .
  8. I’m no expert. But I know this site is more designed to address classic Robalos . But maybe someone here can help. I would find the other Robalo site which I think is now back up and running. That site deals with late model Robalos. I doubt anyone here is throwing on a 300 4 stroke yammie on a classic transom. Just a thought but again, maybe someone can help you out here.
  9. That’s what I figured, I guess I just needed you to confirm what I already knew. kinda hard to secure trim tabs by screwing into wet wood. Guess I need to start saving some money.
  10. Dan what is your thoughts on this drill and epoxy fill?
  11. That’s what I was wondering....I didn’t know how thick the bottom of the hull was. As to whether the tab screws would be screwed into the wood transom or the hull itself. ugh, all this work I did.......
  12. And so my question is, if I go with the carbon core pour option, just how much of the wood transom has to come out? or is the drill down multiple hole with a long drill bit and pour epoxy the way to go? how would that effect the trim tab screws at the hull bottom? I am ignorant to this process.
  13. So you can see inside the hole, which was cut out (this is where the cleats were on the inside). See the wood transom core. He glassed the wood to the back of the transom so as to strengthen it. Especially for tubing with the kids or maybe water skiing.
