Before you have commented on the eccentricity, you should have found out first what is the stress contributed by this eccentricity.  Sometimes plan checkers, just to satisfy their ignorance, try to make a mountain out of a molehill.  Let's assume that the load is a drag load = 4800 lbs. then due to the eccentricity, the moment will be 4800x1.75 = 8400 in-lbs.
the bending stress will be fb=8400/(6x2x1.5x3.5^2) =38 psi <<< say 1200 psi (very adequate). That's the way I see it. If I'm missing something, hope somebody will point me to the right direction.
What you are missing is your real name :)

I think you owe Mr. Quilala an apology. His name appears right above your statement!  If you check the BORPELS web site, there is an A. S. Quilala listed in San Gabriel.  Doesn't appear to me he is trying to deceive anyone.
