Strip: deck fitting

Up to now I have always used Mroske deck fittings but I have been given a pail of deck mounted fittings made by Select Designs. I am not sure how to mount them with a water tight seal. In looking at the Select Designs webb site it looks like they were designed for plastic boats so I am not sure they are even useable.
My first thought was to mount them with stainless screws then remove them and soak the secrew holes with epoxy, sand and varnish the boat then remount the fittings.
a) not sure this would be a strong enough attachment
b) not sure this would be 'long term' water tight
c) not sure I would be able to find the screw holes after filling, sanding and varnishing
All thoughts and suggestions most welcome,
Thank you
