Outboard engine (2)

I have made the inside doubler for the transom cut-out from a piece of 1/4″ myrtle, aka  Southern Beech (Nothofagus cunninghamii), which is very fine grained and quite hard. It has been glued down with plenty of epoxy.

Once the doubler has been cleaned up, all parts will get a few coats of clear epoxy and varnish.
