Name needed for deck fittings

I'm in the process of doing up a 4m Searider. Currently putting a new deck in. I've bought a brand new Avon console for it, which is designed to be bolted to the deck using four bolts. The deck on a standard SR4 has threaded inserts built into the deck which allow you to bolt and unbolt the console without the need to get underneath the deck with a spanner.

I can visualise the fittings/inserts in my head but don't know what its called. Can anyone help?

That's close to what I'm thinking of. Is there a more scientific name for them?

I'm sure I've seen something like that only with little barbs on the top to help grip the surface through which they are inserted.

That sort of thing has potential. Just need to find some in stainless.

Off topic, but what sort of money was that, Tim?

I seem to remember a thread on here on how the bolts on the deck for the transom legs where installed.
I think it was a metal plate with the bolt attached, with the bolt going through a thick piece of plywood and the whole thing glassed to the deck. Will have a look for the thread later. Could be it's done in the same way.
