Yes! thanks for sharing that I have a 84 that I think is going to need that repair before too long It's nice to see some pics. I think I would go for the more labor intensive plating the back of the transom. Seems like a stronger more reliable repair

I did the epoxy repair to my transom, my boat's a bit different as stainless hand rails support the outer edge, the brackets are just small aluminum angles turned up so they're mostly invisible. You can get the complete epoxy system from West Marine (W.E.S.T System 0 Wood Epoxy Saturation Treatment) or larger (and cheaper) quantities from RAKA Epoxy (I used GALLONS building my last 18' sailboat and not a metal fastener in 'er) along with a full array of thickening agents - yes, the folks at WEST System are knowledgable - they (the Gougeon Brothers) pioneered wood/epoxy boatbuilding in the '60's and have done extensive testing on various composites. Make sure you de-grease any area with acetone when attempting epoxy repairs.

great looking boat wes. I want a 240SC for going out on the big water someday. When I was shopping for my current boat, I almost bought the 1990 Maristar 210, but wanted a more slalom specific boat.
