    Afternoon, well I been hard at it this morning. I have all the bolts in I got the other day, only problem is I miss counted the holes. I was 10 short for the transom, and the 8 bolts for the handles that were provided proved to be too short and were common steel bolts to start with, so I got some longer ones of S/S , Some S/S flat washers and some nylock nuts for them too. Taking me a break and getting me some lunch then will finnish this part up. Till later, Eric, AKA, "jamesdean".

    Afternoon Folks, or evening which ever you prefer...I did all I set out to do today.The transom itself is in and rock solid. the only way it's going anywhere is if the whole aluminum transom plate itself comes out. I still need to install the corner braces, and aluminum angle accross the top, as well as trim the excess bolts off with the grinder. Something for another day. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out, actually. Here's some pic's of the way it is now. The corner brackets are just sitting there, not installed. Thanks for following the Build thus far. When I get more done I'll be sure to Post it up...Name:  IMG_20180720_104738.jpg

Size:  88.9 KBAnd here it is. I need to getsome ultra low temp aluminum welding/brazing rods and do some plugging of some holes before I go much further. Who ever took this apart in the first place must have only had a 1/4 inch drill bit to remove the rivits he did cause there are some large holes where rivits should be, and if the rivit was that big, this thing should be an ocean liner. Hope everyone has enjoyed the build this far, and come back when I take it up again. Thank you one and all. Till I start again, very soon, I am Eric AKA "jamesdean".

    I had lost track of this thread ---- Glad I found it again... This Post is about flotation --- My Brother was able to get several sheets of foam 4 inches thick --- those sheets were acquired from a company that does commercial roof decks on flat roofs --- the foam is used as an underlayment on some Buildings -- he got them to build a floating dock, the sheets were 4x8 feet 4 inches thick

    Thank you Fish on Line for the info. You don't by chance know the name of the company he got it from? I guess I can check around up here and see what I can come up with. Thank you again...
