Transam material / build on 2000 Maxum 2800 scr
I am considering buying a 2000 Maxum 2800 scr and it had a tear in the drive shaft bellow. Salt water was getting into the boat... i believe and a slower to manageable rate (if you can call it that).
I am wondering what the transam material / structure is and if this tear and water intrusion may possibly rot out / weaken the transam.
I do believe that the stern drive will need replaced too.
Bravo 3 dual props.
It'll run and move around, but the condition now is poor from the tear and gimbal bearings ruined.
in this aspect, any thoughts on further damage that is typical say to the bell, transam assembly, etc?
Any thoughts would be helpful.
