Bow Eye | Installation

The time came to permanently install the bow eye. I had practised this during the test fit so wasn't too worried, although I did think it would be easy to make a horrible mess with the caulking compound.

The build manual tells us to use 3M 5200 sealant, which is a more or less permanent bond when it is cured.

I applied some caulk to the outer plate and the threads of the two legs and slid it into place. Then I coated the inner plate and carefully slid that into place with the two nuts, then tightened everything up with the daisy chained socket.

It merely remained to wipe away any squeezed-out caulk and sit back and admire the finished article.

Here it is.

Thats the first step of fitting out complete!
