Took a look at a 1992 thompson fisherman hardtop. Any one have any experiences with this year of boat? I took a close look at the transom and noticed that there was some wood where the IO meets the transom. I was under the impression that the transom was fiberglass? From what i can tell everything looks solid except for a piece of the wood on the inside of the transom. Should this raise a red flag?

Thanks for your help

Usually there is a piece of marine plywood where the engine assembly fastens to the gimbal assembly through the transom.

It would probably be a good idea to have the boat checked over.

Hard to tell how good a boat is just by looking. You need to get a surveyor. BTW, Thompsons are not known to be a good quality boat. Lots of delam hulls and shady transoms. Its on my list of NEVER fish on one.
