What did you make the plate out of? Do you do all of your own fab?
Thank you. I get a little OCD when it comes to the boat. Yes, I do my own fabricating. The plate and the attachment assembly are made out of fiberglass. I built a mold and layered many sheets of glass cloth followed by a matching grey gelcoat (which was available from MC at that time) The hardest part was drilling the holes in the transom to mount it. It wasn't physically difficult, I'm just not wild about drilling holes in the boat, especially below the waterline.
