Looking good! Did you replace the transom? Also, are you replacing the core at all?

The transom sounds solid when i tap on it with a hammeri dont hear any rotten spots, and the core was replaced about 3 years ago. Not sure what it was replaced with though

Sound solid and are solid on a transom are two different things. Just saying. I have been down this road before and got would be amazed at what sounds solid, really isn't. I would replace it if you are unsure of it but if not, be careful.
