This Cruise Craft had the transom replaced. We had to replace the transom knee as well which was rotted out. Something we always try an do is get rid of the alloy trim on the top edge of the transom and glass over this edge. This not only seals the edge but also reinforces it. This trim is fitted originally to hide the join between the transom and the wet-well but it causes a lot of problems letting moisture into the transom reinforcement.
