What size mooring bit would you recommend for a 27' trawler type boat weighing about 10,000#? This is for use for a permanent mooring. Do these mooring bits come with a backing plate or are there backing plates available separately?
These bits do not come with backing plates. It is always recommended to go with the strongest hardware that you can fit with grounding tackle. You may want to contact Vetus directly and see if they have a size recommendation, we do not have any literature that would help us prescribe a specific size.

what size fasteners does the smallest Bollards use? thanks!
The 090 has four 6.5 mm holes, the 110 and 130 have four 8.5 mm holes and the larger sizes four 10.5 mm holes. This according to the Vetus catalog.
ok thanks, is there any way to contact Vetus on this? it makes a difference as it has to fit the existing holes I have on my topside. Thank you very much.
I don't see where Vetus specifies what size fasteners it uses. They are special order and I don't have one in stock to measure.
Great addition to bow of sportfish!!!
Easy install that takes some time to prepare the deck for the potential load. I can now anchor directly in line with pulpit, removes strain from windless. It is a very attractive and functional addition to the bow. It does require an additional turn or two with the rode or line because the polish provides no friction. I am very satisfied with the performance of this product.
