Picked up boat today with composite transom cap. following - hopefully - are a few pics. I'm still figuring out this new media section. If this works, it is great. But I need a tutorial!

Upon closer look at the transom cap, it is the same material that Grady uses to protect sharp corners around the cabin of my boat. Nothing new, just a new use for whats been in use for many years. I would guess that it is hpde.

so to clarify, is that two "L" angle pieces overlapped from the inside and outside of the transom and sealed along the top? also, i can't enlarge your photos, so i would be very interested to see a picture of those inside corner piece moldings more close up to understand them better. they are the tricky part to reproducing this as a diy job.

Dave: It is one long piece. If you go to media section you can open the photos and download them. That may help. I find I have to downgrade quality of photos to meet max size for uploading.

In any case, I'll try to remember to get some close-ups next chance I get to go fishing.

thanks, the media section helped a lot. i am going to see if i can duplicate that corner elbow piece by cutting up a pvc rain gutter elbow. if that works, i will order some hdpe angle to redo the 223. i like the effect.
