Re: 1980 Newport 17 Transom Replacement

I would really want to see photos before I considered anything close to a transom replacement.

What is the condition of the transom through hull? Are the O rings intact? Again, photos help.

Re: Newport 17 transom replacement

Post a photo.

Could be a $300 repair, or a $2,000 repair.

Does the transom flex if you tilt up the motor and lift the skeg?

Re: Newport 17 transom replacement

Prior to visiting a dealer, I would suggest you provide us detailed information that leads you to think the transom needs future replacement. A photo or video would help us verify or dismiss this concern.

What is the history of the boat, number of owners, type of use, etc.
