Deck Anchor Points.

All

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.

Nasher.

Can't you just mount the engine on the transom of Nashers Revenge and use it as an Aux as well as for the SIB?

Unfortunately there isn't room to get it on the transom, and taking it on and off would make transfering the engine between boats even more of a chore.

I had hoped to do it and use it as an Aux, but had to give up on the idea.

Thanks for the suggestion, but as mentioned they need to be flush with the deck when not in use.

something like this Monitor Marine International might be an option if either you can put a small hatch in to access the nuts on the back or find something with a different fastening.

I've used these Henshaw Inflatable Boats HEN 2058 or 2059, glued to the GRP deck with the two part hypalon glue. No sign of them coming unstuck despite some hefty tension on them. Haven't tried to hold an outboard down with them though.

Nasher, what you are proposing is similar to this - Pad Eyes, Removable Eye Deck Plate, Stainless Steel, Welded & Polished (although at that price I can see why you want to DIY). Had you considered the need for a "plug" in the hole when the eye is not fitted and that makes fitting / removal a bit more of a nuisance?

Good suggestion, but would need to be stainless-steel, instead of zinc-plated. A summer's use and they will be rusted through.
