You bring up a good point, but I have to believe that the factory would have calculated the load requirements when installing the track. I would also think that the track would spread the load out over a greater area on the deck, instead of a point load at a pad eye (although a large enough backing plate would probably mitigate that risk).
If the early PSCs had a pad eye, I wonder why they switched to the track arrangement. The pad eye would have been cheaper and easier for the factory to install. There must have been some demand for the change. Can anyone speak to why it would be benificial to adjust the backstay position?
