I bought this 1973 Lowe Jumbo 16 recently and I’m addressing the transom now. The wood piece appears to be the original one, it’s pretty dry but doesn’t seem to be rotten judging from the screws I’m pulling out without any dark or damp wood on them. I’m not really wanting to replace the wood but if it was an easy job I probably would. If I removed the bolts going through the two braces and the rivets going through the wood would the piece come out easily? I’m thinking it would drop down to clear the corner plates then back up to clear the two braces on the floor. Appreciate the help.
