Try to use the threaded anchors where the original console was mounted. Mine uses a size 10 metric bolt. I've seen other SR owners who say theirs were size 12M. These threaded inserts are heavily reinforced. Be careful if you screw anything to the deck. If you have a flooding hull, there will also be a buoyancy chamber in the center of the deck.

Or just remove the raised bit. It's not very difficult with an angle grinder and a big chisel. You can then non-slip flowcoat over the deck and it'll look like new, and be totally flat!
