Flush lifting points

Hi,

So I'm still looking for a way to do flush lifting points on my 7m. I have found several, most use a threaded rod to connect to the load bearing mount below, I can't really do that.

I found these, Stainless steel fittings | Helicopter Tie Downs | Hatch Handles | Deck fillers | Monitor Marine International - Multi-purpose Plug-in Connectors - Monitor Marine International - manufacturer of marine Multi-purpose Plug-In Connectors for Super Yacht

Which look super cool and should be something I can have the old mounts modified for.

Anybody ever had any first hand experience with them?

Thanks
Jason

They do look good but they wouldn't be for me to hang my boat off I can imagine once you get a bit of dirt or grit in they could become a failure point
I'd imagine you push it in, think it's connected then once the load comes on it let's go
I may be wrong but that would be my fear

What about these http://www.pacificmarine.net/marine-...shing-pots.htm the half round ones would work well and you could have plugs made the fill them when not in use if required....

I'm like a crow to shiny stuff. It's not so ridiculously expensive, a bit more than the regular stuff but not outrageous.

Yeah, I thought about the potential for failure but seems to me they would have thought of that. It's designed for high end and if you drop a toy on the deck of your yacht somebody's going to be pissed.

I can't fit lifting points in there easily. I want to modify and re-use the existing mounts.

Can you post pictures of your existing mounts, kind of hard to tell exactly what you need without them.

Here you go. I want to chop off the large eye and weld a large tube or something to for the flush connector into. You can see I don't have much access. There are bolts below but getting to them is a contortionist's act. I can trim the deck to fit the new tube. The little wood piece is just a stand in for where the mounting mound go. Main lifting structure is the bottom part, 3/8" stainless, 8 1/2" mounting bolts.

Couldn't you use a similar Base plate but make the lift eye hinge so it lies flat on the deck when not in use
Not exactly what your looking for but easy to do and less of a trip hazard
