Nice job - hope I can use this idea for my boat!?!

I'm pleased to report the anchor points held the Suzi 9.9 down nice and tight, even through some quite rough stuff in Start Bay this week.

Going to add 4 more up in the bow as soon as I get time.

RIBBED For extra pleasure.

Nice Job!When fitting my Towing A-frame I substituted a couple of my captive Bolts for the same type of thing (although looking again,mine do have Bolt/hex heads+Fixing eyes too) to make extra Anchor very well and only took a Minute or two to do!.
