You can see the longer than I would like (4) bolts sticking up but works for testing.

I also went back and countersunk the screws so everything is flush

Did you use an extra large washer to help disperse some of the pressure on the bolt head and nut? Your design is the basic idea I was looking to use, just trying to figure out how to secure to the suction cups and handle. Had a couple ideas, but it's good seeing others' ideas also.

I ordered one last night, should get it tomorrow. I'm going to be using it on a SANTE 230 hull that already surfs well when listed.

I plan to make some different sized wood mock-ups and then plastic if it works.

Yep, just used a large SS fender washer and didn't tighten too much and used a nylock. Need to trim them and find some kinda cover

This thread has got me motivated too - I didn't get too enthusiastic about the platform mounted ones last summer, but something about this design has got me interested.

I'm off to the lake next week, so been shopping for components

I've got a dual and a quad glass lifter suction device, some ply & HDPE - so will be watching with interest to save me time trying to figure out the right sizes and angles

Keep up the good work

ordered some cutting board and will make a test with plywood or something similar... how do you drill into the thin sides of the hdpe and what kind of screws do you use to scure the plate to the backets?

I used 1/2" for everything except for the triangle braces... those are 3/4" so I had plenty of bite for #12 x 1-1/2" screws
