At that point i didn't have them. I had a heavy duty rachet strap that i would pull tight just in front of the splashwell

Those transom eye tie downs saved my boat when a tow truck driver just about dumped my Seafair. He was not very savvy in towing boats, glad I had it tied down by the transom eyes, saved my day.

I should post some pics of the tow trucks getting the boat off of my 4runner. They did more damage by far than the actual accident!

Hello all,

As the sun is slowly creeping out and temperatures are moving towards not freezing, I am preparing my boat for another summer. I had a few questions and queries for the Glasspar world.

Firstly, I have had my kicker motor sitting on the transom. I bought a motor bracket for it. When I rebuilt the transom, i did so to the original specs, 1 1/2" with about 1/4" additional glass. My merc 115 weight 290lbs, so I'd prefer to mount the bracket on the port side of the transom, behind the gunwhales. Has anyone had any experience with mounting it this way and have any thoughts on this?

I also have the lovely side saddle aluminum tanks. I mounted them the best way I could think of at the time, but they have a slight slant to them and I would love to either lift them up higher, where they are more parallel, or at the very least, find a better way to mount them. Would love ideas on this.

-in the cuddy-I am looking for a good way to mount the hatch gasket along the seam under the window. I put adhesive on and tried to use various clothes pin type things to get it so properly seal. That didn't work too well. How do you guys get the hatch gasket tight around this area(in pic)

any good solutions for the cuddy ceiling? I have a headliner from a '62, but it's plastic and seems like it would fall apart pretty quickly. I know one fellow use wood across the ceiling. Trying to find an elegant way to do that!
