Re: Strip: Options for deck line fittings *PIC*

I would attach them on the hull sheer line with through #8 stainless steel machine screws with a finish stainless washer on the outside. This makes the machine screw head appear recessed. On the inside I'd use a washer and lock nut.

I've used the flatheads with finish washers before, usually to hang canoe thwarts and seats, but also for lines. They work fine. Now I like to use a #10 truss head machine screw. The head is about the same diameter as the finish washer but lower in profile than the flathead/finish combo. You can get the truss heads pretty cheaply too.
