Why do you particularly want security fixings? You can buy a set of bits for them at Screwfix so they are no more secure than ordinary fixings. Id use some ordinary A4 socket heads & nyloc nuts.

Only thinking behind it was that it may stop an opportunist thief. Boat is insured for the more determined thief. Drilling the heads out on a couple of the fixings sounds like a decent way to go.

to be honest as i've said before a cordless grinder and good drill bits will sort any fixings out.

I've used these guys for years for 316/A4 stainless fittings. Small or large amounts, very quick delivery.
