I sail a Catalina
27 with an open transom that fits my Honda
out the back with controls in the cockpit
Although there is a drain (and two drilled drains as well) I dislike this design and am planning to fill the transom, install an outboard
bracket and utilize the said controls. Anyone ever see this style and anyone you know ever fiberglass
the transon shut and use a bracket instead?
I plan to do this because when following seas swell the transom never fully drains. Also, don't like the idea of a hole in the back of my boat
anymore! But more importantly I am not able to tilt the engine
as there is not enough clearance.
