The boats in our fleet use this eyebolt with a 1/2x13 threadJEPomer said:Jerry,jerrymlewis said:Thanks JEPomer, but that is the size I know is used for the eye BOLT that goes into the plate that straddles the two aft keel bolts.
I am asking what is the diameter and threads for the keel bolts themselves so that I can install two EYE NUTS on the existing keel bolts (after removing the nuts) and using them to lift the boat, sharing the weight between the two eye nuts. I remember them being much smaller than the 1" x 8 that is used for the eye bolt/plate combo.
On my boat (1988, 281) the keel bolts are 1"-8. It is possible that yours may be different.
