    Default Crack on Transom and Bottom Work

    I was working on my boat yesterday and saw this newly formed crack. Checking to see if its just bad body work or something I should fix before going out. Also a few pics of the bottom, for some of you experienced Daytona owners, to inform me of what I have exactly. The driveline still makes noise, even after I greased it. I'm taking it to Vic this Friday, so I hopefully wont miss out this summer.









    Outboard bottom, turned into a Jet bottom.

    I just met him last weekend too and he set the intake on this boat. The transom is about 1 to 1 1/2" thick, being that it was a outboard. Hopefully, I don't hear too much bad news this week.

    I crawled all around this boat when the intake was set, there was no signs of cracking anywhere on that Transom, it was pretty rough out thgere, we ended up not even doing anything on Sunday! Good meeting you and the family bud!
    Let me know what comes of this, Vic has a good eye, if he needs anything have him give me a call.

    If you paint it white, most cracks will show up due to rust in the crack coming through.
    Just a thought even though it's probably just surface rust.
