..... What would be the problem with a scoop transom other than the vane gear issue?
No problem.. it's an asset otherwise. The only possible 'downside' of that style of platform is the need to still climb 'up and over' the transom as opposed to today's more popular 'walk throughs'.. But still as a dinghy access and swimming access point it's much better than just a ladder, and a big improvement over the P40's accessibility with its overhanging transom.
