I see you used a piece of plastic on the back of the transom, between aluminum hull and the motor. Is that anything special? I had the same plywood backer as this boat, which is toast... and curious what you used there. Thanks for info

I had a sheet of HDPE, high density polyethylene ... think 'cutting board' plastic. Try to find a big cutting board at a discount store or call a plastics distributor near you.
