Thanks IBWET.
As I suspected, the pads appear to spread the load of the hardware, rather than have them bearing directly onto the deck and the bolts are threaded into nuts welded to plates fixed to the underside of the main deck

Pictures of aux pad in bow

The finished article and I believe a success, only thing left to do is make a support pad for the skeg, my very clever father in law has got his pencil/measuring tape out again..

Lovely bit of work - make sure you have a big block of rubber under the skeg and let us know how you get on!!!

Well funnily enough,I originally thought a bit of marine ply (the real stuff,not the crap sold as MP) would be the way forward. So sourced a bit, salvaged from a old dagger board,and was going to work it to fit ETC, However the previously mentioned FIL (brilliant engineer that he is ) has decided that he will make, out of stainless, a block that can be fine tuned with a screw, to guage and set the correct amount of weight spread over the post, skeg and bracing struts well what do you say when someone offers to do this....just you go for it my good man!

He designed the the whole thing to date and I'm still not sure how he new how the locking pin would work....there are 3 bends in it?
