I just heard back from Corlite. The new pricing is as follows:

CoreLite Board 3/4" is $5.12 per sq. ft total for a 4x8 sheet is $163.84
CoreLite Board 1 1/2" is $9.93 per sq. ft. Total for a 4x8 sheet is 317.76

Now waiting to see how much to ship to Virginia.

Well i got a response about shipping. I was quoted $275 to ship 1 sheet to Virginia. They said it would be coming from Miami. So at this point CoreLite is out of the equation. Unless i can find it some place closer. So at this point i am back to square one which is Coosa or Marine Plywood!!

Check your fiberglass supply places around you. They should carry it. If you have to do Coosa then do Coosa. Thats what my Mod V has as Corelite wasnt around yet. As for the floor, don't even try/bother to save the bottom skin. It is only CSM and maybe one layer of glass. Way to thin. If you only do that small area, you would have to rebuild the wire chase along the starboard side.

It would be a little more work, but easier to rip up the entire floor and replace it. You can run under deck chases and I bet around the console there is going to be some more rot you haven't found yet. Also would give you the opportunity to check your stringers for delamination and water intrusion as well. Do your deck in 5/8 to 3/4 Nidacore or Plasticore (honeycomb structure) as it would be strong yet, much lighter than wood. Build the deck out of the boat on the floor, 1 layer of 1708, core, then 2 layers of 1708 for the top. You can also put in you hatch gutters for the bilge area as well. Would look sweet and not a lot of work.

I don't blame you with the shipping. For me it was a no brainer as I can pick it up

Well i made my template for the transom today. Now just trying to get my plan together of how i want to attack this. After cutting out my template i put it on a 4x8 sheet of plywood. And i will be able to get 2 cores out of 1 sheet of plywood. It will be tight but doable if in fact the coosa board is a true 4'x8' sheet.
I also had a guy who said he would do my transom for $1000 if i bought the material. And could have it back to me in a week. Sounds tempting as i have never done a transom and very limited on fiberglass work! Told him i would like references and pictures of work he has done.

Well, if he removes it and does it all, and it's worth your time, then yea, its a good price.

Yeah it is alot to consider. I would like to do it myself and save some of the money for other things on the boat. He will be sending me a supply list today. Lets see what his list looks like. I think i can do it myself with help and guidance along the way. I am still looking for some 1 1'2" corelite. They way i wouldn't have to worry about sandwiching 2 pieces of coosa board.

Well I found some 1 1/2" core lite for $386 and free shipping on Amazon. Now question is what will I do with all the extra core lite that I will have left over? If I decide to buy this.

Well I have decided to do the transom myself. After all that's what this forum is about. So I am hoping to get some help and advice from all those with more knowledge about doing transom work on this site! I think I am going to go with Coosa as it is available locally. So wish me luck and let the advice start rolling in!!!!

Well i made my cut last night and started the task of removing the liner from the cap and transom so i can start to dig out the old rotted transom. Good lord what did they use to attach the liner to the transom? That blue glue or whatever it is is tuff as nails. i have gotten about half of it detached from the liner, going to go and see what i can find to get me the rest of the way down so i can puller the liner away from the transom so i can get that old transom out. Any suggestions on how to get the liner apart from the transom?
