Not sure what the winds are like in New Brunswick, but those fixings into wood and then onto wood don't look man enough to me.
It ia all stronger than it looks, not in NB. I am in Ontario.. The mounts are tied into the house structure, it survived the past winter with no problems at all.

So, that plan has been scrapped..... New deck has been installed around the house and pool, Nice and strong. Just had a 40 foot tower delivered, and am looking at a different beam. Will only be using 2 sections of tower up on my deck. Will give me 45 foot of height, and look a lot tidier!
