No problem. I built one a couple of years ago where the owner was using an old shrimp trawler as the mother boat and loading the DH with a boom and putting up on top of the cabin. I used for bow eyes as lifting eyes. Keep in mind I reinforced the area under the decking where the eyes went.

I wasn't thrilled about the light setup on this one, but the customer wanted the shark eye nag lights to keep them from getting knocked off the front while loading onto the mother boat.
