So I havent been on here in a while a yearish, ive been working on my boat, working in general pretty much just busy, the work continues and there is one thing that puzzles me. I own a contest 30 Mk1 designed by Uus Van Essen. I have looked at many pictures of the same boat but mine has these odd metal plates that i attached the photo of. there sort of an l shape bolted thru to the outside of the cabinhouse and extend below the deck a little bit and slot between the bulkhead and the deck for abpout four inches on one side and the other side the one pictured is not under a bulkhead but is also extending about four inces under the deck and are bolted thru the sides of the coachroof as you can see. Does anyone have an idea why theyre there. I thought maybe to stiffen the coachroof any other ideas. I have literally not seen a single copy of my boat or any other boat by contest with this odd metal plate.
