This Cruise Craft was fitted with a new model E-Tec Evinrude which is a very different style of engine to anything else on the market. The first thing you notice is how much of the engine is aft of the transom. This combined with the extra power puts a quite a bit more load on […]
We always appreciate hearing from our customers: “After finding out that my cruise craft had a rotten transom. I took it to Craig from Boatique Services, Craig went above and beyond to get my boat back on the water for our annual fishing trip to SWR at a very short notice. He sent me a […]
We replaced the transom on this Cruise Craft which according to the tap test only had one soft area. As it turned out someone poured resin through one of the scuppers to attempt to repair the rotted transom causing it to sound solid. Once cut open it was clear that the transom was totally rotten […]
We took on this project the owner had started but had been sitting for some time. The owner had fitted the new plywood and done some of the prep work. We glued in the plywood with epoxy glue and re-laminated the face including over the edge of the transom into the wet well. We were […]
This Stejcraft was a unique transom replacement job working around the hull extensions each side. Access was difficult and the new portion of the transom needed to be blended into the radius each side. The job was all done using epoxy for the bonding and glassing. A couple of extras were larger hull drains and […]
This Cruise Craft was well loved but needed some major work done. The transom was just hanging in there and was replaced only to discover that the two Starboard outboard hull stringers were rotted out. This was evident once the old transom was removed. As usual we used only epoxy for the replacement with all […]

As part of the process we glassed over the top of the transom connecting these two mouldings and strengthening the transom substantially.
