|Author||Topic: transom eyelets?|
posted 07-17-2002 11:01 AM ET (US)
I have just purchased a '64 Nauset that I am trying to restore. I am missing the two eyelets that are on the transom on either side of the motor. There is supposed to be an eyelet on the outside (water ski harness hookup?)and it goes through the hull and has a 2-3" chrome ring on the inside. Any ideas? Thanks.

Are the holes still there? If they are missing what do you use to tie up with? You can buy these relatively cheap.

Are you referring to the transom ski-tow or lifting eyes?

The parts you need are available through any Whaler dealer.

Since I'm new to whalers, I am not sure if these are ski tow attachments or lifting eyes.The original holes are filled and a set of eyelets are installed at a bit wider position. -monty

As Dick points out you can just buy new Whaler parts and install them. I'm not sure a 1964 Nauset had the exact same hardware as was used on the Whalers of the 1970' and 1980's so make sure you know what you're getting.
Generic eye bolts that are available at places like West Marine may be closer to what you want. You can substitute an eye nut for the hex nut to create the lifting eye part of the combination.
