Hi Neel,
I agree - they are great! And they make it easy to do a clean installation. These are standard hydraulic hose/tube clamps which I got from a shop selling agricultural equipment here in Norway. In the US you can get them at for instance Grainger:

https://www.grainger.com/category/plumb ... ube-clamps

They come in all shapes, sizes and materials, and if you want them in stainless from for instance Stauff (a very good brand) they are quite pricey $$$! I started off with a steel version and will paint the plates, so will see how they hold up before moving over to stainless.

Cutwater w/bow-eye

Post by Thomas H »

Hi guys,
Getting (quite) a bit ahead of myself here, but have started to think about the cutwater. As we don't really get float-on trailers here in Norway, I really want to try to incorporate a proper bow-eye into my cutwater without having it sticking out like a sore thumb. Below are some sketches of what I'm thinking. There is a solid bow-eye piece (highlighted in red in some of the pictures), getting welded together with the plate construction. The solid piece will be countersunk a bit into the stem, and then I will have bolts and a backing plate on the inside. I might even add some rods from this backing plate to the stringers, to really make it rock solid. This way I can keep the profile looking right from the side (except from the hole of course), and I don't think it would look too bad from the front either. Thoughts? (never mind the sharp edges and unfinished look, I just wanted to make a sketch of the concept for myself for now ;) )

wow, thats a really neat bow eye concept, I like it.

I'm uncertain as to the connection and strength of the concept though. Not sure how the bow eye is tied in.

Brilliant idea. It would be really cool if you could fill in around the eye so that it is flush with the rest of the cutwater. You might need a special or custom hook, but it would be almost unnoticeable.

Thanks guys!
Steve, see below section view of how I thought to tie it in with the stem (as mentioned there could also be made a connection between these two bolts and the stringers).
Jim, yes, I agree it would probably be cool to fill in the volume "between" the eye and the rest of the cutwater. That would be a very expensive piece to machine though (if I were to keep it solid)

Very elegant and practical design! The bow eye component should be doable even without CNC... flats and angles look like they could be shaped with a standard mill and some setup jigs.
