Yes, they're singles. See attached pic.

As they're actually fixing through the deck with bigheads, I'd go for 3 or 4 on each side flange of your doubles. If you were using woodscrews into the deck, I'd recommend you use a lot more fixings.

The solution

Only just getting around to the new removeable /interchangeable jockeys and bottle rack....

Thought i'd post up the solution we have gone with in case it helps anyone else /anyone wants anything similar.

The BigHead system was good, but they were only able to supply a system which was blind on the fixing /strip side, which would have meant needing access below the deck....which we do have in some areas thanks to hatches, but not sufficient to get in to fix etc. They would /can make up special orders, but it wasn't viable due to the small quantity i wanted...

Had looked at welding up our own system, but my local engineering firm came up with these(great guy if anyone needs anything doing....will be happy to pass on his details....he also makes the BEST lightsabre replicas i've ever seen!).

They are machines from solid SS bar and are 1inch deep to sit flush in the deck. The holes will be drilled so they fit tight and the undersides have been left with machined finish to aloow a bit of a key for the Sika

Assume this is the best adhesive, unless anyone has any other suggestions????

They will sit slightly proud on deck, but not enough to cause a trip (floor coating will be brought up to the edges too), and they will only be exposed when the rack is in when we have a grassmat over the top anyway.

We also have some allen key grubs to fill them /keep them clean when not in use. Have 12 to fit 6 per double jockey which will also have a long plate inside each flange to spread the load when bolting down.

Nice update, thank Dan.

If I grasp this right, you will effectively have 18 wood screws per double jockey?

18 woodscrews....that's right....BUT, the fixings have been machined to fit tight into 20mm holes (they will be tapped in tight....they have a slight bevel on the leading edge to allow this. the undersides have also been left with a rougher finish to allow keying with an adhesive....currently intending to use Sika, unless anyone has any other /better suggestions.

I'm pretty confident the system will be strong enough....and won't look too bad either!

Dan,
I am looking for something similar, but M12, to give me captive bolts where my upper console bolts to. Currently they are non-captive, and it is a b_____r to get a spanner in!
Would you mind giving me an idea of price (the bigheads in this size are quite expensive!) Thanks.
A bit late in the thread, but I have the same removeable jockey arrangement as Brad - sorry only just caught up with this thread

As a follow on from this thread....just retrimmed the seats so they all match (main pod and the rear /removable pods....they are a slightly different style, but don't think it matters...same height virtually, the pics lie!).

The floor dowel system has been working fantastically well and shows no signs of movement despite a lot of traffic on the seats and weight on the bottlerack (incidentally have a SS bottlerack if anyone needs one....I gave 50 for it on ebay, but have stuck with the old one as it has a really handy kitting up table on top....will dig out and put up here /or PM me).

I bought a high grade vinyl via a mate in the trade and used his kit, workshop and TBH expertise (a lot) to retrim them....overall, i'm chuffed with how they look.

Re bagged the foam and went for grey upholstery (marginally cooler than the black and red ones we had previously esp. n shorts )...with red piping to match the tubes....

Using the old material as a template...you can't go wrong!
