I have just bought a small rib as a tender to my sailing yacht. I need to fit some rings onto it so that i can lift it with my two davits on the stern of my yacht. My question is do i fit these rings on the GRP deck of the rib or the tubes. I think they should be on the GRP deck and if so how would i fit them and what rings should i buy? The rib and engine weigh about 140kg
Hi Maurice and welcome to the forum. I think I would be fitting them to the deck but try to locate them where you won't be constantly tripping over them. I would think 8mm ones would be an appropriate size. You might make sure you put a pad underneath too to spread the load.
