Hello I’ve made a mistake on installing a 9.9 4 stroke to my San Juan 28. I created a wedge from 3/8″ aluminum to compensate for transom angle and attaches an outboard lifter to it. The wedge is bolted through the hull with a 1/4 aluminum backing plate that is about the same dimensions of the wedge. Everything is attached with 5200. I used the materials for wedge and backing plate simply because it was scrap that I had laying around. Unfortunately I had no idea that my transom being about 1/2″ thick solid fiberglass wouldn’t be able to support the 9.9 until I installed it and noticed the transom moving quite a bit with a small amount of pressure from my hand on the top of the motor. Upon further research I realized fairly quickly that I need about 1 1/2″ of material. Any ideas out there for beefing up my current design without battling trying to take apart the 5200.
