Since fiberglass resin doesn't adhere to metal very well, I decided that the 4 bolts that mount the tracking fin would make an outstanding way to really strengthen the base mount's installation. The idea being that I sandwich the fiberglass hull between the tracking fin underneath, and the pylon mounting base above.
I found that a 6" x 6" steel plate 1/8" thick would provide the perfect size to accommodate this. I cut the plate, measured, drilled and tapped the holes for the 3/8-16 bolts and set it in place to check alignment of the holes.
