backing plates.im adding backing plates to all the cleats.
- im adding backing plates to all the cleats, im going with 1/2 inch ply with thru bolts and fender washers. im now thinking that i will make a ply sheet that will fit in the fore peak. anchor rode locker, this would let me beef up the cleats and the stem fitting. has any one done this? is this a good idea to "tie" all the loads in or should it be two parts? i will epoxy it to the deck.
