TOPIC: 1964 Lone Star Medallion Transom Needs Replacement

1964 Lone Star Medallion Transom Needs Replacement 1 year 11 months ago #119907

Hi all!

As the subject stated, I have a 1964 Lone Star Medallion with a rotten transom. Looking for advice on this project.


(Yes, I'm a Noob!)
Thanks in advance!

WeatherEye,

WELCOME ABOARD.

IF I was doing it, I would use either 3 half-inch layers of MDO, laid in epoxy peanut butter OR 2 X 3/4" layers of the same.
(Such a transom, properly sealed with epoxy should outlast the hull.)

Thanks satx,

I had planned to use 2 layers of 3/4" MDO sealed with epoxy. Finally started the project yesterday. Drilled several buck rivets on both sides of the transom...apparently not enough to gain access yet to the rotten wood.

Going to hold off from further drilling until I'm certain how many more (and which ones) need to be removed to accomplish this task.

Have been hunting all over the Internet to find additional info...no luck yet.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Pics...the 2048 size limit for pics is giving me fits. I have tried re-sizing but still something is not quite jake.

Please standby as I deal with these technical difficulties.

View from inside the boat...the rotted transom.

BTW...I found out exactly what I must do to gain access to replace. I'm going to have to drill about 100 or so buck rivets from the stern to the rear windshield support frame. Most of the rivets are along the gunwales.

WeatherEye,

Do you need floorboard patterns??
(I think that I still have a full set.)

Yessir...I could sure use the floor patterns. BTW...did you ever find any seats for your Medallion? Or at least the configuration?

WeatherEye,

The Medallion "went away", as I found a MUCH rarer TX-built boat. = It went to south LA to be redone as a fishing machine.

Send me your snail-mail address by PM & I'll try to remember where I put the envelope of floor patterns. - They are FULL-SIZE.
(I'll start looking for where that I "hid them" tonight.)

satx,

Thank you sir! I am not adept on Fiberglassics. Could not find PM...but I did update my profile to include what you need...should you find the patterns.

If you do not mind explaining to me...How do I PM??

Kind regards,
WeatherEye

Can you remove the splashwell without removing the gunnels? I rebuilt a transom using two pieces of marine ply encased in glass. I cut off the kick up on one side and could just get it into place.I put the cut off against the aluminum and slid in the next piece the opposite way with plenty of resin in between. I used a bunch of short screws to keep the boards clamped together while the resin set. I sealed the screw holes with resin when I pulled them. If I remember right I used 5200 to glue the first board to the aluminum, so it is not going to be fun to replace it. It held up for 18 years. One thing, don't put the wood all the way down into the bottom of it's slot in the transom and drill a couple of weep holes to let moisture drain from under the wood.

Unfortunately no. Not without tearing up the part of the splash guards...and possibly compromising the integrity of the structure. I'm okay with the removal of the gunwales. My transom is 1 piece and considering the maximum recommended outboard is a 90 HP...I would feel much more comfortable with a one piece. Besides...there is simply no way to peel back anything to gain access without drilling about 100 buck rivets.

It is what it is.
