At least this late spring here in WI has given me some extra time with all these projects.
That turned out great. Is the backing plate stock on your 83?

No it is not stock. My dad made this after he bought the boat in the 80's. The previous owner had damaged the area around the bow hook. (I have no idea how though...) This is also when my dad added the little plate that pressed into the fiberglass pad on the inside (shown in first pictures) I'm guessing the they had issues with the bow hook loosening up back then.

He did a heck of a job. That looks fantastic. Mine has a little gel damage and I might be needing to fabricate something similar.
