Very nice!  Love the classic Blue/white/gray.  Beautiful, water spot resistant, and cool in the sun.

Probably this. Trailer tie down ratchets.

or if you don't have the ratchets, the place to strap your boat to your trailer.

The holes are at the wrong orientation for the boat buckles.  Those require a different type of bracket.

The hole doesn't seem large enough for a traditional strap -- and the angle between that point and the transom eyes is also wrong -- it looks like would put pressure on the side of the swim platform.  

 

 

edit: nevermind.  It appears they strap to something below the swim deck.

Surfgate boats strap to the swim deck brackets, and the transom eyelets are just for lifting now.

Seems a tire blew on the semi and bent a fender on the trailer.  Dealer is replacing.  I will take a look this weekend.  Is it summer yet??

Love the boat (and colors!).  Now update that boat in your signature .. again!

Tie down points to clear the actuators in the surf gate.

the traditional tie down points outboard would clash with the actuators
