Re: What shim material to use between the transom & motor mount?
At the dollar store (or WalMart) you are buying "White plastic". Unspecified type, density, uv resistance, but it may be ten bucks instead of fifty, at which point I'd just take the risk for a simply shim that can be easily replaced if it is a mistake. And sprayed with 303 or another UV protectant as well, if you want to help the odds.
McMaster or Grainger, slab, shipping...I'm afraid to ask. Oh, I see MarkSF ran that down--for a small piece. So, maybe $80 plus shipping for a slightly wider one.
SF, you've got PAINT that will stick to polythenes??
