Bolstering the transom with mechanical connections?
07/07/2005 10:05 AM Pacific Time In the same way that the force of the forestay pulling on the bow stem is transferred to the bow eyebolt with rods and turnbuckle, has anyone done something similar for the transom?
For example: glassing in fillets (with eyebolts fixed to them) on the inner surface of the cockpit liner, hull (inner bottom and inner side). Then running rod(s) or swaged cable(s) with turnbuckles to the motor mount bolts.
I hope I have expressed myself enough for some of you to get the idea of what I am asking. Maybe an engineering type can express it more eloquently.

This was my first post, and, I could not see how to enter the name etc. to that area on the left side. Thanks!!

Tying down the eye bolts through the top of the transom is not necessary. I doubt you would have enough room to do so anyway.
