hi,i mounted tHe transom but i didnt cut the angle yet .whats the best method for doing this :?: :idea: .its to long for a tablesaw.maybe mount a long board on the back of transom thats cut at the angle and use A handheld circle saw? and go slow :!: !i wouldnt have to cut it all at once just alittle at a time. oh yeah its framed also >so ill be cutting 3/4 in. ply and 1 in. white oak.>mount the board >use it as a guide and cut :!: :?: :idea:

The skilsaw is the way to go with the transom laying flat on some sawhorses or table with it hanging off. Just cut it a bit wild and then when you place it back on the strongback you can refine it with a grinder or belt sander when you get it set to the angle that you need or like.
