Squireel are your seats held in with self tappers or Bolts.

Mine did. On our rib we installed a twin bolster. Problem was fixing that bolster to the deck. Normally they fix it in the factory. But in our case it was not possible (big delivery delay for those bolsters + distance between console and bolster should be set at our length). So they put a big metal plate on the underside of the deck. Now we are able to drill a hole through the deck and metal plate to fix those bolsters.

Dunno, I'll check, might be tricky as I think they are glassed into the deck. Jason at Prosport assures me its fine....

Its all very well having bikini clad passengers, but they do tend to scream above 30 kts and complain at going round and round at 20 kts with a boarder. Can't win.

Through deck fixings

Here's the homemade version of some gravity toggle type fasteners, in catering stainless and stainless boiler tubing. Studding left long and then cut off after nuts tightened

Nice toggles

clever guy that would definitely make a good fixing and the aperture to fit them wouldn't compromise the decks integrity as much as an inspection plate.

One issue with this type of bolt is drilling blind into a closed void you never know what you are going to find if your hole lands on top of a stringer or rib, you end up having to drill again Des

A very valid point, I was lucky in that we were re-fixing and existing but poor fastener. Delta did offer to supply us with the relevant drawing had we needed it.

Tap the deck gently with the handle of a screwdriver, you'll hear the solid bits.

Scary, parcel is on it's way.

True, but still a point to consider I suppose another issue is the vertical height of these fixings, they need to pass through a long way before the horizontal bar falls into position, now that would be OK on my boat because there is loads of room, but on some boats this might not be the case, especially working close to the side of the boat where the hull comes up to meet the deck. Still they would be a lot simpler than fitting a couple of small inspection holes

Sacry,

Designed ours to drop in 40mm or deeper. They are limited as have to remember to tie fisshing line or other retrieval method on to keep hold of them if you wish to make any changes after sawing off the excess. I did wonder if there were any stainless versions currently being made but couldnt find any hence the heath robison eddifice.
