Deck fixings...

Hi all, hope I can get some advice here, I'm looking to do away with the 2 20litre fuel tanks that sit on the deck at the stern and replace them with a single (larger capacity, 70-90ltr) tank. The problem I have is that when were out n about I have 2 tanks and 2 jerry cans that just get in the way. Now, back to the subject in hand, I want to be able to strap the new big tank to the deck, do I need special fixings or could I get 2 loops made that I can screw and glue down and that be good enough? Any suggestions would be appreciated, cheers all!

I used pad eyes on my last rib for strapping down 2 x 22lt fuel tanks with ratchet straps it worked fine use silka flex & SS m10 screws to screw them down they should be fine buy the ones with 4 screw holes in they'll be stronger

I think Nasher had a similar problem last year & finished up making a good job of it. Worth searching out the thread.

Try an ebay search for 'webbing bridge'.
