Default stern eyelet

so the stern, center ski rope eyelet is a little loose on my 1800sr3...of course it has that trunk compartment so you can't get to any bolts to tighten....what's my options here? cut a hole in the trunk compartment to get to it???

I am surprised you can get to from the forward anchor locker. Have you try to get a hold of a dealer (ex maxum dealer)? Do the bow cushions slide out to give you access?

I have yet to see a nut that cannot be reached. Now that is not to be confused with EASY to reach. In some cases, you may be required to remove something in order to access it. For example, in order to access the bolts for my midship cleat, I need to remove the entire medicine cabinet in the head. The same may be the case for you towing eye.

Can you reach underneath and up the back of the 'trunk compartment' from the engine compartment? Is there an insert in the trunk compartment that can be removed by unscrewing screws? A few pictures might help out as well, since it's tough to picture what you're dealing with. I'd hate to wait for an owner of a similar model to chime in, particularly of those owners have never had to access this particular item.

A few pics and I'll bet we can get a quorum.

I usually subscribe to this notion but not this time. It certainly appears that the rear of the tow eye on my 2400 SC3 cannot be accessed without making an access hole in the stern ski/lines/poles/generator/cooler/whinny kid locker.

Here is an idea. Cut a hole to access it, then use one of these to seal it up again:
