caper 14 bolt rope on tramp pulling thru

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have been working thru the issues on this boat- fitted a mast step and base, mast cap, put new 5mm cord on the tramp, made it nice and tight.(got some bits of Luke and Russell-nice blokes)

Still in the backyard, start raising the mast,  standing on the tramp the bolt rope pulls thru the ally extruded transom, I am a 105kg :)

Is this fatigue in the alloy transom? or is it over its designed load capability?

Whats the most durable solution to the problem?

Safe sailing,
