OK, so the lifting eyes are installed. How are these normally sealed/or are they sealed? I could use a number of things to bed them. The clearance is small
I could also put a "oring" on the eye...

Quite a bit of fiddling to get these right. Ended up having to put a small bend in the rod to allow for the curve of the deck so the lifting eye would be flat against the trim washer. Oh, and the bottom and top mounts are different, Fine on one and course on the other.... Lets just say its custom....

Thanks to Roberta for the tip on the bottom mounts. Not having to fab this piece is a big help.

Nice work Robert. I suspect shinning them up will be somewhat easier than the cutwater.

Robert-
Boy your boat has really come together nicely! Glad you are on the home stretch. The SS work has really given your boat some character and set it out from the rest! Hope to see it on the launch ramp soon!

These tomahawk shapes were purchase from Classic Boat Connection and were used. I had to have them re chromed, Classic Boat Connection can also supply the trim ring, which really finishes it off nicely.

Hi Bob!
It turned out nice, but it was an immense amount of work, like about 200 hours, although I didn't keep strict track. I made a steel one as a trial, and I had the cut water guy make one which, while looking good, wouldn't have fit. So my options were to make it myself, or go with a stem bead. I got the bedding compound you recommended, and will be putting it on this week...

Nice :)

The Cutwater guy made mine.. I had trouble with the fitting.. At the time he was inside of a 2 hour drive so he came up and finished it off.
Even 100 hours is a lot. Yikes!
