    I am sitting in Canada but going home tomorrow because the transom on my 13 foot inflatable is bending outward and looking pretty sick. The worst part is that I have been here for 10 days waiting for the weather to stabilize. The traveling sedges are just getting going on Sheridan too. So, has anyone ever had a transom replaced on an inflatable and do you remember the cost. thanks in advance. Warren

    I cannot answer your question but I am sorry to hear you've been there more than a week and then this, just as the weather improves!

    Check craigslist BC and buy yourself a boat! Likely cheaper than repairing an inflatable.?. And you deserve to fish.

    Thanks for the kind thoughts Jeff. I found a place in the lower mainland that will do the work. I would like to keep the boat as i have a custom trailer under it, custom anchor system custom seat etc, etc. Best. Warren
