Normal for the bolts need more info on console plans. Are you making a plug from foam or the console

I don't think they go through the floor on mine-mine look like they are set into glassed on pads. They go all the way through the transom.

The 4m stays go through the hull as far as I know,but the 5.4 doesn't.

I thought I remembered the ones on mine going through the floor, but mine was an early Island Plastics hull. ADS would know-he was the last one here to see it


The struts on a 5.4 DEFINITELY shouldn't go through the floor though.
