STEP 1 - Hold Tow-eye in mounting location and check fit. If fit is a little off don't worry, the bolts will tighten the tow-eye tighter against the hull.
STEP 2 - Trace outline of Tow-eye.
STEP 3 - Rough up jellcoat surface inside marked area for better bonding of adhesive.
STEP 4 - Hold Tow-eye in mounting location and drill the forward most hole on both sides of hull. This step will help hold the Tow-eye in place for step 7.
STEP 5 - Generously apply 5200 marine adhesive to the inside mounting surface of Tow-eye as pictured.
STEP 6 - Also apply 5200 around the back side of bolt heads to assure a watertight seal.
*** ( NOTE - This step will also help prevent rust from bleeding down the finish from the back side of bolt heads. )
STEP 7 - Hold up Tow-eye in location and insert forward bolt into pre-drilled holes to help aline and hold Tow-eye in place.
STEP 8 - Install backing plates, flat washers, and ny-loc nuts and snug down first set of bolts.
STEP 9 - Drill hole #2 on both sides of hull and snug down, and so on.
DO NOT attempt to drill all the holes at one time.
STEP 10 - When all bolts are good and snug, repeat again from forward to back, tightening to your fullest. (Keep all bolt head slots running in the same direction for a neater look.)
STEP 11 - Once the Tow-eye is tightly mounted, use Mineral Spirits to clean excess 5200 from edges. Wipe 5200 evenly around all edges and into bolt heads for a nice finished look.
