    Kennedy Products is hoping to add a gallery of customer applications to their website — pics of their products in the wild, so to speak.

    If any of you all are using them to secure coolers, live wells, casting platforms, stripping buckets, or whatever else and have photos to share, I’d sure appreciate it.

    You can post them here, PM them to me, or email me at overslotweb@gmail.com. I’m not affiliated, BTW, just their freelance web guy.

    Here’s my setup for starters — threaded deck bolts, eye bolts, turnbuckles and turnbuckle adapters.

    Thanks, @CPurvis ! Is that a Yeti? That's smart the way you ran the strap to keep in close to the cooler wall.

    @permitchaser , do you happen to have any pics of your application handy?

    Here's mine holds my casting/ poling platform with zero issues. I believe z Thomas and smackdaddy where who told me about them.

    They hold my outboard from moving side to side when trailering it's tied off to the carry handle of my 20 hp.

    That make sense. Have you looked into transom savers. Don't know if they help with swinging

    Appreciate the help!

    @Smackdaddy53, so is that a Kennedy deck bolt and eye bolt and then another brand pelican hook turnbuckle? Looks stout. Why the diamond plate disk?

    My boat sits so high on my trailer that I can trailer the boat with the motor completely down and have plenty of clearance so have no need for a transom saver.

    Yes and yes
    I put that plate on there because it’s a cored deck and when I tightened the nut even a little it was compressing the deck and making a low spot. It’s not beautiful but it’s functional. Inside the deck I used a 3” round piece of 1/2” starboard for a big washer. I can tighten the hell out of the turnbuckle and not worry about compressing the deck underneath. The skin is just 3/16”.
