 The boats which do not have a rounded stern (here belongs the batanas too), need a transom stern (spéčio, špéčo). Phases of its construction are shown below.

Adjusting the thickness on a portable thicknesser.

Detail showing the way of joining transom elements.

The transom construction parts were glued using a PVA glue an hold together with F clamps.

After transferring the lines from the plan we cut the transom with a jig saw.

The transom was painted with red lead tetroxide and joined with the last timber.
