Re: Bow Eye?

Ok. So im going to use life caulk for the bow eye. A friend at work suggested that I also put a block of marine plywood behind the u bolt and glass the whole thing. Is this necessary, has anyone heard of the u bolt pulling out or cracking a fiberglass hull? It just seems like overkill to me, but then I am new and don't have alot of experience working with boats.
