Hi,
Today it took me the better part of 2 hours to mount the first piece of deck hardware. My excuse why I took so long to mount the bow cleat is, that it has hidden screws which looks nice but is a bitch to tighten in the small bow area by a 250 pound builder without anyone holding it in position on deck. I just did lay it on the thru hull holes on deck and tried a couple of times to gently find the thread of the cleat. But I think it was worth the effort and that is why I took a picture of it.

Excellent, Karl, perfect.
Could you have used tape to hold the cleat in position while you struggled under the deck to get the screws in?

Hi,
Thanks for the idea with tape and glue I will make use of that when I mount the 2 cleats SB and PS near the transom. I have only used marine glue the other day when I glued the plastic windows onto the boat but never thought of using it for the cleat here. I was tempted to ask my wife to hold the cleat in position but dismissed her help for some time when I really need 4 hands. The cleats near the transom I will mount only after having mounted the 2 push pits which I ordered also in stainless steel with a sore heart because of the high price and because I will not use my self made fibreglass carbon push pits. They are very light and would have done the job for sure but I did not like the fact that I did not get them uniquely round and therefore not looking so good. I cannot throw them away having put so much work into them and keep them therefore as spare which will most probably never needed. The SS pushpits from Osculatti an Italian boat supplier I ordered 10 days ago and am waiting eyeryday since for them to arrive. Another lesson for being patient which I never was and wonder if I ever will be.

Hey, we're all particular about showing workmanship that we're not proud of, but I'd still like to see the carbon pushpit.
