I recently acquired a '72 22-2 and planned to do a few cosmetic "touch-ups". Well, I went digging at the transom cap and found some really wet wood, so here I go...

So, as I get the majority of the transom core out, I see that most of the tabbing from the inner skin to the hull is cracked. So, looks like I'll have to set the transom, then cut the floor to repair the inner skin.

Well, I think I decided to do the entire deck (minus the casting deck). The rigging trough cover needed recored anyway, and I'm not real crazy about the way the tank cover fits/looks, so I'm going to redeck. This thing has turned from a simple repaint to a major project...

I thought I was into good glass in the transom, but I hit a couple spots with dry cloth that are really going to mess things up. Every time I think I have a plan...

Don't want to be the bearer of bad news, but you're going to need to do the stringers too. The good news is you'll be happy with the end result.

I was hoping not to do the whole stringers. I was trying to just cut back to where the moisture ends, dig out the foam, pour new foam, recap, retab. I at least want to avoid removing the cap and casting desk.

Absolutely you can do that, that's what we did with our '73. Tabbed the clean stringers inside and out, poured foam and capped

To add to what Scott said, I bet you might have some stringer delam from the hull forward by the casting deck. Most of the hulls, I have seen do have some type of it. The old type foam was a sponge and sucks up water. The new stuff not so much. That is the problem with these old hulls, once you crack them open, there is a lot to fix. Not hard work, just labor intensive. Good luck.

Yeah, It's looking more and more like a complete rebuild. If you look at the first pics, I believe some work was already done on the front half of the hull. The bottoms of the forward storage compartments looks like they have been cut and put back and the entire front of the boat bottom has been rolled with looks to be some type of resin.

Save the casting deck assembly. Cut it out tight at the gunnels, then tight at the deck plus save two inches of deck (floor) aft of the casting deck proper. Keep intact the port and starboard liner also.

Remove all in one large piece. Will re-install easily, plus you can foam/insulate the fish box from behind while its out.

This will give complete access to the forward stringers. Important that the stringers are right and tight here, this is the entry area in a seaway.

Kevin is spot-on regarding the old foam. We have seen 70's 22-2's lose 400 to 700 pounds by removing water-soaked stringer foam and wet/rotted transom plywood.

As he mentioned, old foam was open cell. Today's foam is closed cell and non-absorptive.

For reference, the "Miss Delmarva" 22-2 rebuild is shown on the old board we all once frequented.

I'm really kicking myself for trying to the transom from the outside now. Seems like I created a lot more work for myself.

You're good. Don't doubt yourself, that's how the pros do it. Rebuild to the inner.

No worries :605_thumbs_up:

Half dozen each way. Cut out approx 4 in around the entire transom, remove everything. Put up a melamine board and glass inside. Install core, glass rest in. Do outside transom and fair. Call it a day. Don't take the ring cap off yet till you get the transom done. Cut the deck back about 2 foot and go to town on the transom. Get that done, brace hull and have at it.
