    There are simple ways to get around the problem of too much heat when pouring a thick transom.

    You can purchase a resin designed for thick laminates, or switch to a different catalyst that will reduce the peak temperatures dramatically.

    My little boat is coming up to 12 months now with the solid glass transom and still rock solid. There is definately merit in the idea.
