Here's a link to the dropbox album. Perhaps that will work.

Are you sure those web loops were designed as lifting points? Can't tell if they're backer plated or not, but it doesn't look like it. Or are they on the inside of the U-bolts?

No I'm not sure if they were for that. It's a guess. Sent a text to the original owner but he hasn't responded. The webbing is sandwiched between the hull and a backing plate with what I'm guessing is 5200 (the white stuff).

It looks as though holes were burnt into the webbing to allow it to slip over the bolts and they were doubled over before the 5200 and backer plate was installed. But in the bow, the bottom of the strap that goes all the weight looks like it tore enough to slip over the backing plate and nut.

This is all I found that looked like a double U-Bolt, but is clearly not what I need. The site refers to it as a "M" bolt.



I can envision what it would look like with a U on either side of the hull, but I can't figure out how that would bolt on. I have seen double sided eye bolts:



Is that what is meant? But that would only use one bolt and would see like a lot of pressure applied to a small surface area.

Lifting Assemblies


This is what I was talking about...however, it will not work for your application.

I would ensure the bow eye is bedded well, and I would use one of these :

I'm still at a loss for what these are for and how they work, since they seem to be the mysterious lift points Avon refers to but no one really explains or provides pictures for their use.
