Re: Strip: deck fitting
In Response To: Re: Strip: deck fitting *PIC* ()

Rbodelon, thank you for the description and photo's. Looks like a doable project for me except I am not seeing how they will work in the bow/stern areas where I no longer have interior access. I may make your recessed design for everywhere except those areas and try to make the same design with reversed lips so they insert from the outside. This would leave them protruding but at least they would be at the ends of the boat. Minimum I would have is one at each end, most would be three at each end. Depends on how far apart I can get them so I could reach an accessible area.
Thank you again for the posting :)
