I create the transom by creating a new face. First make sure your boat is the way you like it. Model the stern so that it looks nice in profile view, ten model it so that it looks nice in the body plan. You now have a big hole in the stern, the hole is the part that should look nice. Then you ctrl-select the points on the edges around the hole. It’s important that you select them in order, like when you were a child and drew lines through points in a book to make a figure. Then you create a new face from the points. The new face will fit nicely on the side but you have one edge that will most likely run diagonal. You need to split this edge and adjust the new point to fit. You will also have to turn some points into corner points depending on how you want the transom to look.
