I took my 1998 268 islander in to have the transom cap replace two weeks ago. Pulled both motors off and much to my surprise the transom had a little moisture but it was totally delaminates and separated from the wood. I’ve own the boat since 2010 and sealed the transom cap every season. Now replacing the entire transom. This will be a nice bill when I get. The positive side is the shop doing the work is top notch.
