Mounting A frame on rear of rib transom

had a couple of questions about mounting the a frame on the back of my zodiac 4.2. Have attached some pics, this is the one that is available on e-bay.

It comes with pre-drilled holes and 12mm copper pipe internal strengtheners, I drilled out the holes in the frame to accept 12mm bolts and drilled the transom to accept the same.

Caution - measure twice drill once!! or twice in my case, the reason i mounted on the rear of the transom is because it fouled the tiller control arm, considered packing out on the front but this way is much neater. Lots of sikaflex around holes. No need to pack out under the lip of the transom as this is not load bearing.

If I was you I would get some penny washers under the nuts as the a frame is subject to load in a sea way. And you wouldn't want it to sink in to the transom.
