It depends on how the padeyes are mounted. If they're screwed to the fiberglass... no... if they're through-bolted with fairly large bolts (say three 1/4-20 bolts) and have a backing plate and such, yes, they probably are.
Are padeyes strong enough to serve as termination points for jacklines? The point about the aft cleats is well-taken and I have padeyes toward the centerline of the boat near the stern.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
