Ok, here is an off the wall question...
I want to replace the bow eye on my '85 Albe 24. Does anypne know how thick the hull is? Suncor stainless has 'em with a thread length of 3.4" or 4.5". I could order the long one, but would rather get the proper length rather than cut off excess (to avoid snaring anchor line).

Any comments on changing from 7/16 to 1/2" diameter? Opening the holes should not be too problematic...

Also, all I have found are 304 stainless. Any clue where to find one in 316L?

My current ring is 7/16 diameter, with a 1.5" opening and showing a little corrosion around the nuts. ...Am concerned about chloride stress corrossion cracking.

Thanks, Woody
