I know itís been asked before, but I donít think anyone has ever really found a satisfactory answer.
Following our Dartmouth holiday I want to find a better way to strap the Smaller Nashers 9.9 Suzi down to the deck of the RIB. Plus other 'Cargo'
This would involve having permanent anchor points in the deck which would need to be:
- Stainless steel.
- Completely flush when not in use.
- Installed without access to the underside of the deck.
My current thoughts are to weld an M10 nut to the back of a Disc of 3mm plate.
Route a 3mm deep recess in the deck with a hole in the middle to take the nut.
Epoxy the disc into the recess, plus use 4 countersunk screws to hold it down.
Use screw in eyes to lash down to that can be removed when not required.
All the above in Stainless of course.
What I donít like about this idea is:
Iíd rather not have the screws showing.
They would be a lot stronger if they went all the way through the deck with a spreader plate on the back.
I may regret this, but ĖDiscuss.
