I have a 2005 2520SL with the notched transom. It is not an issue for me at
all. I am mostly in bays and rivers, and occasionally out of Manasquan Inlet
on good days. Never any water. I suppose the closed transom and engine
bracket would have been nice, but not for our budget. I actually think that
if a wave were big enough to come over the transom it would come over a
closed transom as well, and I would rather be able to have the boat drain
quicker by powering it forward. Hope I don't get to test that though!
