You really don't want to start putting stainless rails or similar on the tubes - what if someone falls on them??? The rubber cleats are only glued on I know but then again so would the stainless - it is the bonding that would prob fail first.

Looking at your boat there are various stainless rails at the back and on the A frame - also the screen has a stainless rail. Us these to tie up - the further the ropes are away from your tubes the better!!!

Tying up at the stern is know problem its at the bow I need them so thereís not much chance of falling on them there the reason I need them is to be able to tie up easily along side other ribs so tying to the rails on the consul is no good because you need to be able to walk between the consul and the tubes with out stepping over or limboing under the rope I donít intend using them to tie up to the pontoon with so they havenít got to be fantastically strong
