How is a cut across the gunnel not noticeable? It was done on my boat and it IS noticeable.Yes you need to cut the gunnel back 3 or 4 inches and bend it back to get your hand in there. It’s not noticeable when put back together.

Part of the reason I wasn't happy with the job done on mine. Cut it, bondo and a sticker over it.
Sounds like the absolute best option, especially since you didnt have to cut the gunnel like if you had replaced with wood.I did mine with sea cast. Time consuming but simple process. I didn’t have to cut any gunnels. I used an auger bit and extension on a 1/2 inch drill sucked it out with a shop vac. Replaced all the bolts and squared everything up. It took two pours. Once to bring it up to the cap height and then went to the brick supply and got a mortar gun. It’s like a refillable caulk gun. Replaced the cap on the transom and squirted the rest full to the top. That is the most solid transom I have ever felt. I’d do it again. I wouldn’t even consider replacing with wood. They people at sea cast called to verify my order and offered any help I needed. Good people to work with.
Man.Just had to replace my 1984 transom 2 years ago on a alumacraft.. after my buddy's fancy 60,000$ Lund Tyhee falling apart literally (everything wrong,broke, busted) not sure I'd ever own one !Lots of threads with pictures and info on Walleye Central. This is a very common problem for Lunds of that era.
