Well the rain came before the Epoxy. So i had to wrap it up for now. I started to strip the bracket though. Here are some pics. I have tried everything form blasting to sanding.. this seems to be the most effective at it.. I'll leave on till most is bubbled off then take the rest with the pressure washer...

WEll I gave up the stripper and resorted to a incinerator Or burn out oven.. I used to work for a electrical motor rewind shop and well. This to me is the most effective way to remove the stubburn powder coating.. I should have bit the bullet before i tried stripping but hey at least i can I I have done it. haha. Back to the transom.
I went and wet-ed out another layer of 1708 and 1808 over the wood. and on both occasions. took a screwdriver and wedge and rolled the glass into the inside edges as far as it would go. and rolled out all the bubbles.. after it kicked off a bit. and got somewhat tacky.. I wet-ed out a good amount of cabosil and epoxy to the consistency of mayo and smeared a generous amount onto the 1/4 corecell. and mashed that onto the back of the transom. I used this left over corecell to finish making up the coring. after that set up. I ground the edges of the hull and ceaned up the excess glass. then mixed up another batch of cabol-sil and epoxy this time to a peanut butter consistency and filled the voids from the corcell to the edge of the hull. that way I will have a nice surface to finish glassing to...once that kicked off I layed one layer of 2 oz mat and then two layers of 1708 alternating the 45 degree weave.. and that is all for now. I will grind the excess around the hull and measure to see if I need another layer of glass.. it should be pretty close..I figure another 4 layers 2-1808 0-90 and 2 1708 0- 45, all alternating and maybe a couple of layers of 2oz mat then I can start fairing with epoxy and cabol-sil.. yes I know ,that is what I said.I am trying to say away from lightweight fillers on the transom.. especially if this boat is going to be left in the water for more than a couple of days..
