Ok I am painting the hull this year.  I have a 42 tournament fisherman 1978. I want to take the existing game door and make it a walk through transom door.  Any help out there.

Look up member Greg Gajcak and get in touch with him. He has answers to all your questions.

So you have the swinging door but now need to cut out the gunnel section and make it a flip lid, right?

That is how I did mine, in 2pcs - a door and a lid.

Did you make any structural improvements in the transom to account for the door?

Yes, both sides of the opening and the base were framed with mahogany before the jamb sections and sill were glassed in 

Here's a PDF file showing how Greg Gajcak did the transom door on his 35 Commander.

Any chance on raw photos of the reinforcement?

No, not before we set the FRP panels at the sides and base but in the pic of the port side jamb you can see the screw heads that went into the added framing.  I do have this shot when we were building the door using the skin that was cut from the transom

Thanks that helps 

Dick,

Thanks for sharing these photos

Ive been contemplating adding a transom door on my 35  but I keep fighting with the idea of cutting into my perfectly good transom. Over the last year alone I've probably climbed over my back deck thousands of times carrying countless loads of restoration supplies in and out thinking a lot about the Gajack's transom door.
