Default RE: Cracked transom, 1993 Pro-V 1775

The number of people reporting similar situations may misleading due to the large traffic WC attracts; this thread has about 600 views already. I've owned 6 different aluminum boats over the past 25-30 years, and this is the first time this has been an issue. That said, I'm certainly more than a little disappointed that this happened so soon. My next boat is still going to be aluminum - whether it is a Lund or not remains to be seen.

I'm beginning to wonder if my particular problem isn't more stress-related than weather rot. My boat has been garage kept year-around the six years I've owned it. If indeed Lund added additional transom support braces in 1994, maybe they recognized that the older design wasn't well suited to hold up to the stress of bigger more powerful motors.
