    transom problem

    Just picked up 1200r over the weekend. While taking apart I notice a couple bumps sticking out on the inside of the hull between the transom studs. Found out 2 of the jet pump mounting bolts went too far and pushed on the hull. Is this someting I should be concerned about? Ill get some pics later tonight or tom.

    I would pull the transom plate to see what the other side looks like then repair it and reseal it. Looks like there was something behind this when it was bolted on.

    Now that I think about it, I wonder if that is a result of someone removing it in the past? some prybar damage maybe? I don't know any other way this could happen.

    Looks like somebody jack-screwed the pump attachement bolts thru the transom plate, and they started coming thru the transom.

    This is normally a great way to remove the transom plate, as long as you are smart enough to remove the 4 nuts inside the hull.

    Take it off, put some EPOXY repair in there and sand it all flat. Look for 2 more near the bottom, matching the 2 bottom bolts.

    Pump bolts are too long.Im 1000% sure.The transom plate/pump bolt holes are drilled/tapped all the way through.Get the correct length bolts.I can see the transom has been off and resealed.

    how difficult is it to remove the transom plate from the hull? Or could I just get the correct length bolts and seal them up with thread sealant without it leaking. Or would the correct way be to take it off.

    I would remove the transome(4 bolts,nuts,washers) and use Marine Tex to fill the damaged indensions from the rear,outside part of the ski.Sand down smooth after its dried good.Use 3M5200 fast cure to seal the transom plate to the hull and bolt it down.You will see 3 alignment tabs on the rear of the hull.Make sure the transom is up tight to the tabs when you bolt it down.
