    Funny, from time to time I get some complaints from the other-half about how much time I spend working on the boat. Is there a recommended fix for that.....

    Tell her you could be spending time down at the local bar instead. Then run for your life.

    On one of my boats I used Rivnuts to create a bolt down section... I good friend has the tool (airplane repair guy) and together we got the job done.
    The Rivet is internal threaded tube that is set in place with a special hand tool. Once in, a bolt can be threaded down the tube. and it holds tight.

    It was much cheaper then buying the quick twist SS fasteners. It held for year, then I sold that boat for my E29.
