tollycraft transom

Recently aquired (free) a 1975 26 ft tollycraft sedan.It originally came with a v drive.my question is,if i cut a hole in the tramsom to install an inboard outboard will i need to reinforce the transom or is it beefy enough as is.Its simular to this one.It was a 318 v drive,now gone so i have a blank slate.

Welcome to the forums.

That model originally came with an outdrive as a power option, so the transom was certainly built to take it.

However, since you'll be doing some reinforcement and glass work anyway after you remove the old shaft, strut, and rudder -- and to add or move structural components to accommodate the new engine position -- you might as well reinforce the transom.
