tager is on a distinguished road
I've often thought of bedding deck hardware on the bare glass, in thickened epoxy, with no mechanical fasteners. This would require judicious use of clamps and perhaps powerful magnets, but I am reasonably confident it would work. This would create no leak worries, and only require a bit of paint around the fitting base. That is, unless you glue to the gelcoat, which would probably work just as well.

I would definitely not try this on a mooring cleat, but it could be just the ticket for little non critical deck hardware!
