Soft vs Regular Pad Eyes

Posted by M Davis on May 13, 2006

It is now time to decide how to do the attachment points for the deck rigging on the WR18 that is slowly inching towards launching.

The standard CLC screw-&-finish-washer-pad-eye attachment is straight forward enough and not bad looking. The alternative, thru-the-deck-soft-pad-eye is also in the running.

Has anyone had any experiences with either/both of them to strongly favor one method over the other?

Happy building, MD
