recessed deck fittings
Posted by Bob Lippold on Feb 5, 2006
I'm planning on ordering a Shearwater 17 within the next 3 months (must wait till after dive trip to start this project). This will be my first wooden boat. I noticed on another site that some wooden boat decks are built with recessed fittings for the deck bungies instead of the cloth straps bolted on top. It seems like the bolted on top straps would make good spots to get caught on when your doing a self or assisted rescue. Also the recessed fixtures look really cool. Has anyone done this on their wooden boats? Do you recommend it? If so, where do you get the recessed fixtures and how are they installed?
