Default Transom

Burr,I understand what your saying, but the tell tail signs are hard to spot unless your really looking for them the only reason I found out mine was bad was a transom cap screw worked out about a quarter of a inch and wouldn't tighten down. Even with the transom wood bad I could still barely flex the transom pulling on the lower unit, in all honesty if that screw hadn't worked lose I would have never known.

I'm going to go ahead and guess that a large percent of the people who vsit Walleye Central pay way more attention to their boats than the "average" person,...

A couple of friends of mine have boats with bad transoms, Due to owner neglect, And even when it is pointed out they just shrug and say "nah, It's still good",.......................

I won't get in those boats,...............

Lot's of folks think just because it's a boat everything is waterproof and leave them uncovered filling with rainwater or snow,.........

I wouldn't have known mine was starting to rot had I not been reading here. Can't flex it yet, I imagine it would be fine to use for a few years yet, it's 8 years old. I'll take care of it over the winter.

Yes x2,it's got to get real bad before the average boater will notice.
There's no way of knowing to what degree people check them,
