Kenneth: You may want to check your shear parallel to the grain with a reduced section, since the main reason for the 3x requirement is to prevent the sill plate from splitting when plywood nailing is closer than 3" etc. If the sill plate is adequate to transfer the shear with a 1-1/2" thickness, then have the contractor notch the square plate washer area only and keep the full 3x in between. In most situations, this will work, unless you have a very high shear with heavy anchor bolts and reduced spacing. Another simple solution, short of drilled anchors, will be to install a heavy gage metal "C" channel or runner with pre-drilled holes for the anchor bolts and place the 3x inside the runner and attach with the same procedure as above. In addition, you need to transfer the shear to the runner through nails or wood screws in pre-drilled holes. I hope this helps. Regards, Oshin Tosounian, S.E.
