Transom thickness 1982 Mc.

I'm planning on replacing the lag screws on my swim platform with through bolts and backing plates, but how thick is the transom so I get the right length.

I have a fiberglass platform on my 81. I just reworked the platform this past winter. I drilled the the existing holes where the lag bolts where out to 5/8" then I filled the holes with epoxy. Then I drilled those holes out to 3/8" and used carriage bolts with with large fender washers on the back side. I also used rubber grommets between the platform and the transom. I had also did the same with the platform as far as drilling a larger hole and filling it with epoxy. This way if any moisture where to get around the bolts the wood in the platform and the transom is protected.
