Thanks. It appears that my Mod 3 (year 2000) boat has a solid transom that I can drill through and bolt to a smaller backer board (fiberglass)?Check my earlier posts. My1986 Mod 1 had a flimsy transom. I beefed it up nicely for my trolling motor and swim ladder. Any questions give me a shout
Did you get the answer to this? I also just bought a motor mount from CD, but also uncomfortable drilling holes in the transom. It's hard to get anyone interested in doing small repairs/updates.I have a year 2000 (Mod 2?) and I bought a motor mount from CD. I'm not comfortable drilling holes in the transom. Anyone know who in So Cal would do this small job?
I drilled holes in my transom (1999, Mod 3) for a swim ladder. It was no big deal.Did you get the answer to this? I also just bought a motor mount from CD, but also uncomfortable drilling holes in the transom. It's hard to get anyone interested in doing small repairs/updates.
It's teak, if I'm not mistaken.I've been on this site a long time (about 6 years) and always enjoyed the interaction! If you check all my posts you'll see the story of what it's like to take in a tired old orphan and turn her into something special! And a few costly repairs along the way showed me that the BOAT (blow another thousand) situation can develop with a small boat as well as a larger one. Feel free to give a shout if you see anything on those old posts that piques your interest, there's a wealth of information there. PS, I would be real interested in knowing what kind of material they used to support the mast base on the Mod 3
If all you need is the wooden tiller, it would be easy to make one since it is just a straight piece of wood. Get a piece of wood like teak. oak or mahogany, and shape with a rasp or plane. Or find a local wood worker to make one.I just purchased a 2011 Mod 3 which is in pretty nice shape. I’m excited to get her fixed up and in the water before long. One item that is trashed, however, is the tiller. I enjoy refinishing wood, but this is beyond salvageable. Does anyone know where I could find a new one? I’m striking out on all my searches. Thanks
