Re: Bow Eye?

More than likely where the threaded part of your bow eye is going to protrude into the boat will be in the "vee" formed by the stem. Unless you cut some blocking to flatten out and reinforce a spot your nut and washer won't have anywhere to sit but on thier edges. Spend a little extra time now to mount it correctly and you'll never have to worry about it ,or someday when the tides low and you have to really work to drag her back on the trailer and the whole bow eve flys back at you hooked to the cable you will wish you did.
