Coosa, hull & deck putty, vinylester laminating resin , use the “screw thru” clamping method then remove screws after cure and fill with H&D. Warm weather over 65degrees or tent and constant heat until cured. 70 degrees would be ideal. As said , leave the outer skin if possible , clean , prime with laminating resin and layer up the Coosa with H&D . Next day back at it to layer up the inboard glass work , maintain the heat to cure and done. Talk to Joe, he’ll set you on the correct path.I would absolutely leave the outer skin. Do all your demo inside the boat, use whatever tools necessary.
I think the transom replacement is the easiest part of the job you are looking at, you just want to make sure you get good contact between your core and the fiberglass outer skin.
You will need clamps of varying sizes, and wedges that you can brace against something to hold the lower portion of the transom in place.
