Hooks under gunwale to hold ropes

This past summer, I installed some hooks under my gunwales to hang ropes from. They work pretty well. I had to drill the holes with a drill bit in a chuck and spin it by hand but it was not too bad. Also, if you do this on your boat, make sure you look where you install the hooks and line them up with the ss grab rail, that way you know where the hooks are and it is not as hard to find them when reaching in there blind.

Nice idea, I like it!
FWIW Makita and others make a 90 degree angle drill would work great for this.

Just using the bit and chuck worked great. It also helped me ensure I only went through the the fiberglass and not all the way through the wood and vinyl.
