Rowboat – Bow Eye
Category: Boat, tow, trailer, tie
Problem: I did not like the bow setup on my rowboat where there was a hole in the bow plate for a rope,
also, I had covered the handle grip area with my bow light mount (Refer to:_.010306 Rowboat Bow Running Light Mount (a). I wanted another attachment point for a rope
Action: I purchased a bow eye and inserted it in the bow with an aluminum piece of metal on the inside of the boat to act as a backing plate. After the bow eye was secured in place with marine calking, I sawed off the bolt thread protruding into the boat.
