Below is what I found on the Lund website under FAQ's. Looks like 2006 and newer models do have transferable warranties for a fee. I thought it was only original owner, which I assume is still the case for models prior to 2006.

Is my warranty transferable?
2006 and newer models have a transferable warranty for a fee. Subsequent owners are eligible to transfer an active warranty and are eligible for a 10-year prorated warranty that is based off of the boat’s original date of sale. For full details and to transfer the warranty, please contact your local Lund dealer within 60 days of purchase.

Thanks for the replies guys. I will be investigating the transom further before I jump to the conclusion that it needs replaced. But I'm thinking it'll need it eventually. Looking at the transom of the boat and the read pan overall, it all looks solid and doesn't flex or anything like that. But given the number of bubbles across the transom it sure doesn't seem right. I'll need to pull a motor bolt and/or a top cap to see what's what and then determine who might do the work and when. I've got several good leads from this forum. Thanks again.

I'd be curious as to what you find under the cap and the motor mount bolts (pics). I have an 02 Fisherman 1800, and I might do the same

Well I quickly pulled the top caps. First side, not terrible up high. Second side, I knew what was up as soon as I pulled two screws and they spun out.

She's definitely rotten. Amazing really when you look at the boat and it's in near perfect condition for its age.

Well, I pulled my cap a few years ago or so ago and it looked like this. I've since sealed the cap hoping to get a few more years out of mine. I don't have any bubbling paint like you and really don't see any flex when moving the motor but I've also got an inquiry into a local dealer to see if lund makes a replacement HDP for my boat. If they do I might look into it. if you go down the replacement route keep us posted.

Well that is a bummer but with the bubbling it is what was expected. If there is a silver lining, when it's all said and done you will have a rock solid transom. I highly recommend you go the composite route and never worry about rot again. You got a nice boat there when you get it all fixed up, enjoy it and good luck on the repair

Sorry to hear Hunt1 up, but my neighbor did the exact same thing several years ago. After several crazy quotes we decided to do it our selves. A big job for sure and not cheap. First we emoved the engine (115 Merc 4 stroke), with special lift tool ($$), disassembled the splash well, remove transom cap, then dig out ALL the spray foam in each compartment to access nuts on all the screws. We installed Cosa board ($$) but could not match the dimension correctly so added a couple aluminum plates ($$) to match the original thickness. It all went very well but disappointed that all the original screws in the transom were not drilled perpendicular. When the screws are removed the heads would be bent one way or another. We are both aircraft mechanics so familiar with aluminum and corrosion so cleaned and treated all the corrosion before reinstalling the new transom. Once you get this done you need spray foam ($$) and exterior paint. I think we spent about $400 just in paint for this small area, oh then there are the splash well drains and installation tool. A big job for sure but we got it done with no issues or future worries. So as the quotes were pretty expensive the labor, special tools and supplies are a big part of that cost. Good luck

I have the same problem with my 2000 2025 Pro V. It is scheduled to go in for repair this winter. I'm too old to take on that repair and a different boat is not in the plan. With todays prices repair is the only way for me to go. The plywood problem was not handled very well by Lund. The good news is Lund boats are worth fixing, once fixed properly they will last a very long time.
Have a great day.
Jim
