1975 Sea Nymph 16R restoration - transom corner brackets

Post by meh92 »

Hello everyone. I'm new here. My project is restoring a 1975 Sea Nymph 16R. Both transom corner brackets are cracked and drilled through like Swiss cheese. I placed a WTB ad on the forum and I'm hoping to get lucky there.

What other models of Sea Nymph would interchange, if any? Is there a vintage Sea Nymph parts specialist on the forum or floating around out there than might be able to help? The generic ones I've seen for sale online are 90 degree brackets. Mine are nowhere near that.

Thanks

Another angle:

If you can find a small metal fabrication shop nearby you may be able to get them to fabricate a coupe for you. I have seen others on this site do this, with great success. A fabricated one doesn't have to look exactly like the old design. It just needs to provide support for those transom corners (and maybe some extra real estate for some accessories like rod holder, stern light, etc.).

Just a thoughts.
