    Default 1989 Saltare bow lifting eye

    The boat has to come off the trailer for a minor repair to the hull. There is no bow lifting eye, but under the front hatch, where I assume you'd stow an anchor, there is a 3-4" diameter hole to access the backer plate for the bow eye. The backer plate is a piece of 1.75" angle with a 3/4" hole in the vertical surface. Can that be used to lift the bow? Thank you.

    I think I'd go through the hole in the hatch and pick straight up. The stern has the lifting eye so I should be able to lift the boat in a horizontally level attitude.

    Your picture scared the stuffing out of me till I figured out what was going on! Still scares me! Did you have the cap off at the time of the lift?

    Usually you would use a strap under the tip of the bow that goes through the bow eye. That way the thick fiberglass at the bow supports the weight, and the bow eye prevents the strap from slipping off.

    I was looking at the boat yesterday and wondering if that would work. Thank you so much for the response. That's exactly what I'll do!
