BogMonster Posted July 17, 2006 Share Posted July 17, 2006 I have just bought some 316 stainless steel eye-bolt fixings for my boat. How would an M12 thread 316 grade stainless bolt compare in tensile strength compared to, say, mild steel stud bar and 8.8 grade high tensile bolts of the same size? I guess it will be somewhere in between but just wondered, and I am sure one of the learned engineering types on here will know the answer It probably won't matter because I suspect they will be stronger than the transom on the boat regardless, but was just curious.... just in case I ever have to tow something off them in an emergency.
