Hi,

Have finished the transom and attached some shots, have also added some gussets in the corners of the transom.

Very nice work...A point of note, if the wheels are the simple hard rubber ones on the dolly setup, you may want to upgrade them to some better ones such as the air filled ones or at minimum the larger ones thats used on scaffolding. The weight that you have now will increase to a point that most of the hard ones will flatten out or even crumble.

Oyster,

Thanks, If you have a look at the photo you will see that there are screw jacks that take the weight no weight on the casters.

I see that. But if you plan on rolling the boat and its setup around, rarely do those wheels survive, especially if there are tiny ball bearings in the hub mechanism. Good luck,,

Will coming through that way at easter might call in if you are home...
