Sorry to be so long replying! Here's a shot of the boat from the starboard quarter, and you can see where the tiller is:




The setup is OK, and the railing keeps anyone from falling out of the boat. It certainly seems sturdy enough. Maybe the backstays help!

Yeah, I'd go sailing instead of learning fiberglass repair, probably never be an issue in protected waters.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

No, the tiller is right in the middle. It's just the camera angle.

I am going to make a board to fit into that opening, though. I figure I'll get some teak, glue it together to get the thickness I need (a little over an inch), router the top to match the curve and then then a few coats of cetol. Should look very nice.

Dunlookn has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Don't be anywhere near the opening when you find out how much a piece of teak of that size/thickness will cost you.

To me that openinging looks just the right size for my ex-wife to go through...

I'd then fix it after the sailing season.

Doesn't have to be as thick as the transom, just thick enough to keep a dropped bottle from rolling out of the cockpit.

[Checking price...]

Did I say "teak"? I meant "something from Home Depot". It's not structural. Paint will look nice.

I'd go with your idea of a drop board there, and maybe a folding ladder somehow.

This boat was offered with an outboard power option, and IIRC that was where the motor mount would be.

You could just leave it open and put a couple of lifelines across it. If your cockpit got swamped you would drain much more rapidly with that "open transom". I don't think the board installed would be a structural requirement since your backstay is split and way out at the corners of the hull/transom. If you wanted to enclose the transom I think a big piece of starboard with a drain slot in the bottom would work fine.

I have seen at least one other N28 with this transom cutout. I think it was a factory option for easy climb in access (prior to sugar-scoop transoms).
