I'm considering doing this to my boat when I haul it out in the spring for a complete paint job and service. I was thinking about only cutting it 2/3 of the way down to the cockpit floor and making the section removable like a companion way door 2 bolt latches to secure it. I had already planned on reinforcing the transom with an additional layer of glass, ribbing and wood where the outboard mounts to eliminate the flex when the outboard is running hard. If anyone else has done this, I would appreciate their advice.
