    Transom plate removal(beware)

    I decided to remove mine and reset it,i just never was satisfied with the way it looked,it was sealed really good but was not completely pushed all the way up against the tab on the left side,almost 1/8th of an inch,this was causing a clearance problem with my ride plate,it was sealed with 5200 fast cure and was a real pain in the butt get it off,it actually pulled the gelcoat off and i was extra careful,it took 4 hours just to get it off.it want be tat hard to fix but it will be correct this time.should i fix the gelcoat or just let the 5200 fill it in when i reset the transom plate.

    IMO just clean it up with some sand paper (remove the big loose stuff) and seal that baby up with 5200fc. Also you will have to glob a lot of sealant on the rear shoe portion to get it sealed back to the transom (unless you are pulling the shoe too)

    also let it set-up for atleast 48hours to make sure its cured before water testing

    This why I use 4200 on the transom and shoe, even though you never plan on removing them, you just might have to someday.

    I used 5200 on the shoe, but I only used yamabond on the transom plate... is the yamabond not enough?

    I have had to "re-do" a few shoes and transoms because the 4200 didnt hold up, so I quit using it.

    +1 4200FC is not holding up as good as I would have liked on my pump shoe.
