Attaching inspection covers on Skerry

The covers come without any kind of fasteners.  I'm thinking short brass woodscrews along with marine silicone seal.  Any better ideas?

RE: Attaching inspection covers on Skerry

I've used small stainless steel screws (I think they were #8 x 1/2") and marine sealant (3M 5200).  No problems so far.  Also, the large yogurt containers fit snuggly inside the port - I've used them as covers during storage with screen covered holes cut in to allow air circulation.

Thanks, I ended up using #8 x 1/2" brass screws and the marine sealant.  Great idea about the large yogurt containers.  I had planned to just leave the covers loose, but then would probably forget to tighten them before using the boat.  This way it will be obvious.  I think I'll just punch a few small holes in the container bottoms.
