Looks good. I assumed you intend to tab here?

It would be good to run that tabbing onto the new glass. All that force gets applied on gradients that way.

Easy to do, just dart the glass on the vertical and lay it down.

Also, it is good to overwrap the top of the transom; same story; force gradients. I seem to recall you were or did, but lotsa strength on one side and little on the other is not best because you can get stress risers in the corners then.

If you have any doubts; after it cures for a week; just push against it with your legs and see if it gives in the middle. Looks strong to me.

Pic of back of transom. Also where i plan to tab tomorrow on the well to the stern of the boat. Thinking one layer of 12oz. biax should suffice. Also taking care of that one dried out corner on the back of the longer layer as well.
