    Default Transome tie downs

    I dont have any on mine and was wondering whats the best way to do it....
    By that i mean how to get it even and exact so it dont look ghetto :sly:
    And if you got some pics to post up as reference for me thats great
    As you can see i have nothing to tie down to, and i really dont want to wrap it around the pump to secure it while towing..

    Picked these up today.....

    Now if i had some pics ;D

    Just make sure you have wood where you plan to install them, and use something rather large for extra backing. Also drill holes for the locating pins, other wise it will spider crack the gel.

    Well im not the ultimate expert but im sure they need to be above the bunks and i would say add some rings to your trailer too and use some ratchet straps and off you go..btw Tom at jbp was going to remake some intake covers a while ago, i wonder what ever happened to that idea....
    if i was doing it i would put the ring in your boat about center above the two bunk and put the rings just toward the outside of those so the straps pulled at a slight angle to help make sure the boat doesnt move side to side...again im not a boat and trailer expert but im a rigger so i can tell you how to fasten a load correctly...

    And put these on the trailer. Best thing I have done to the rig, bar none. I LOVE these things! Quick and easy. Can't get lost or drug down the road.

    Why not just go over the bowl? its not like the intake is through the transom, besides, i would rather reset the intake in 5 or so years if that's gonna be the argument, rather risk repairing the transom if a bump was hit hard enough to pull a through hull eyelet. just my opinion.
    there is not as much leverage as if the hull was cut all of the way through like in a full set back pump.
    not to mention, there is nothing more ugly than a nice clean transom with big ol' beefy eyelets hanging off the ass end? again...just my opinion

    Been a while since I've posted any useless info, but here's how my tie downs are. One of the few things that I didn't touch, well except I tightened them up before dunking it. But they came with the boat, so im pretty sure that they're right, and they look straight and even.

    Good luck.

    I'd go around the pump. Just my opinion but I think it gives it a clean look when there are no tie down eyes on the back. I didn't really care about what it looked like on the trailer, it was all about how it looked on the water.

    When I had my 19' Daytona I went over the pump. Never had a problem and it kept the transom clean by not adding any hardware. Never really thought it looked ghetto by any means.

    i use a strap over the pump, and don't really care if it looks ghetto or not. i've also broken 3 boweyes over the last 5 years, most recently this last august, at the end of a 1400 mile trip. i like the strap...
