Question "D" ring in bow

Hello All,

I am planing to put my 35MKI on a mooring this season.
For a safety measure, I am considering a stem "D" ring in the bow as an added security point of connection.
I will still use the bow cleat as a primary attaching point.

Before doing so, has anyone out there done this and would like to share your findings?, I plan on beefing up the inside bow with wedge cut mahogany.

I would appreciate any advice and input on this,
Thanks!

I think that makes good sense... it's a very strong part of the hull, and with the proper backing as you describe should be fine.. You want to be sure to caulk it properly so that future leakage is not an issue.

And you need to be able to accept the look of it - it's a bit unconventional but I can't see it doing any harm.
