Dana, Thanks for the input. We haven't put any new holes in the
boat. I said deck just to differenciate from a backup of water from
the rope locker. One more question if you'll take the time. Do you
access these screws and bolts from under the rubrail or from inside
the boat. As you can probably tell, I'm not near the boat. (we
keep it about an hour away) My son will be using it tomorrow and
will be checking on the hints that you guys have given us. We'll be
pulling it soon for a mid season power wash, etc. and will have
easier access to the rub rail if needed from the outside. Thanks
Granpa
