      On the ts16 it's a Ubolt,both "legs" pass through bow the backing block.Ubolt spreads the load from a single eyebolt to twin retaining bolts.

      Or you could do both. Fit a block of wood in the bow and drill an
      oversize hole for the bow eye. Fill everything with thickened glop and
      glas over. Then re-drill the hole to the proper size. Have an large
      washer and locked in nut. Maybe held in place with Loctite sealant.
