    Hello all,

    I'm in need of a backer plate for this boat I'm working on. Previous owner just mounted gudgeon and then epoxyed around ends of bolts (no dice). I need just the backer plate with vertical concave to fit over concave indention in fibreglass. Anyone got one lying around?

    Best,
    Loxley Compton

    I use a couple of pieces of aluminum flat bar 1 in wide purchased from Lowes. Much cheaper.

    Good thinking. Just cut to vertical length and place on either side of concave in fibreglass then run bolts through? Thanks.

    I do have a "factory built" aluminum internal back-up plate for $10 + $5.90 for a USPS Flat Rate Small ship anywhere Flat Rate
    shipping box. If interested, e-mail me at: aglos@colgate.edu.
