Re: transom trim ?

It's called "bang plate"

Most often it was aluminum. Try a metal extrusion company in your area.

I think you will have to build a temporary support structure for the hull to maintain the shape as you remove components to make the repairs and replacements. There are NO line drawings or plans for any of th...

Has a deck filler and copper line from tank to the stern of the boat. I also used two old 6 gallon metal tanks at the stern under the rear ...

Re: what does the future hold?

Yes, this forum is on it's death bed.

There are TWO active Thompson facebook pages: Thompson Boat Owner's Group and Thompson Antique & Classic Boat Rally. Plus a zillion other groups focused on old watercraft and outboard motors, yadda, yadda, yadda.
