Re: Strip: Options for deck line fittings

At this point I really want to get this boat finished and in the water - no compromises on safety, but simplicity is a big plus. Given that, my impression is I'd be better off with some sort of external deck line fitting that I can bolt on, rather than bothering with a recessed type such as a maroske - but hoping to get some feedback on that. Recessed fittings definitely look nicer - but are there any other benefits I should take into account?

I prefer the SS bar in a recess style of deck fittings to the Maroske's, as there's more space for multiple lines (and dual use with shock cords for gear and lines for safety).
Recessed fittings are a lot of extra work and are much more 'permanent' than pad eyes. You can always add an extra pad eye or remove one and just fill the holes with RH machine screws.
