    Beefing up the insides for JSD

    I'm not the guy to engineer laminates but that sounds close. My experience is mostly with wracking forces on corners of heavy equipment and also small stitch and glue boats. Without adequate gussets materials joined at angles can too quickly become hinges. That's my point.

    Beefing up the insides for JSD

    Which is why structural fillets on the inside corners of the transom-hullside corners are worth considering.

    Beefing up the insides for JSD

    A structural fillet couldn't hurt. The JSD will introduce dynamic loads the designer and builder never anticipated.

    Beefing up the insides for JSD

    The bridle will cause some pinching of the transom, maybe not much but the boat will slew and experience significant side loads.

    Beefing up the insides for JSD

    My amateur thoughts are rather than drill through the new interior 'chainplate' reinforcement, poke through the new fabric-tow to displace the strands around the fasteners before the resin sets up. Put a generous fillet at the hull side-transom intersection in that area.
